The paper is calling on all Americans to unite in anger against “the elected leaders whose job is to keep us safe but who place a higher premium on the money and political power of an industry dedicated to profiting from the unfettered spread of ever more powerful firearms.”

It has been many decades since The Times ran an editorial on Page One. We do so today to deliver a strong and visible statement of frustration and anguish about our country’s inability to come to terms with the scourge of guns. Even in this digital age, the front page remains an incredibly strong and powerful way to surface issues that demand attention. And, what issue is more important than our nation’s failure to protect its citizens?

    The NY Times are sort of the Johnny-come-lately on this one; NY Daily News having stole its’ thunder a day earlier with it’s front page exposé trashing the Republican Presidential hopeful campaign front.

    Truthfully it would have been nice if either paper and a gaggle of others around American had spoken out – LOUD AND CLEAR – on this issue years ago, well before annihilator- or spree-killers had become almost daily occurrences; better late than not at all, I’m supposing.
