Jeffrey Goldberg is a writer for The Atlantic. he is a recipient of the National Magazine award for reporting and also wrote the book prisoners: A Story of Friendship and Terror. in the article The Case for More Guns (and More Gun Control)he begins by talking about the columbine and the shooting in the Colorado movie theater and talks about different people stories that were involved in these shootings and what their opinions on gun control are. he also says that it is basically too late for gun control to work because so many people in America already own guns. I agree with the statement that gun control will not work because even if they ban some guns some people may still have those guns from before the law came into effect so it would just be pointless. also there is a black market so criminals will find a way to get these guns off the black market. in the article he also has a quote from someone saying ” if there were no assault weapons available and no this or no that , this guy would fin something right” I agree with this because even if there were no guns people would still find a way to hurt other if they wanted to
