Adam Winkler is a professor at UCLA School of Law. he is the author of the book Gunfight: The Battle over the Right to Bear Arms in America, and has also written many other article about gun control. in his article, If You Don’t Think Newtown changed Americas Gun debate, Consider These Facts, he talks about the impact that the shooting in Newtown has had in the gun debate.  he brings up the fact that democrats tried to stay away from the gun control debate before thinking that it was unpopular but now after the shooting the democrats are making it a big deal. he also says that there is more money going to campaigns supporting gun control then ever before. I think that it is pathetic that politicians that were pro gun control try to not make it a big topic because they think it is unpopular. but as soon as a shooting happens like Newtown they use it to their advantage. I think that there are too many politicians that go out and do or say things just people it is what they think will get them more votes.
