Liberals Talk Guns

A radio interview, NPR-style, the "Leonard Lopate Show." Guest is a former New York Times editor, Craig Whitney:

Now, I'll tell you at the outset that these are both still liberals, and their notions about guns will never be acceptable to a gun rights advocate; they speak approvingly of such things as ending the gun show loophole, getting rid of 100-round magazines, allowing states to determine how strict their gun control laws should be, "assault weapon" restrictions, etc. Whitney is, refreshingly, not totally ignorant on the subject of guns. Lopate, however, is the very epitome of a man ignorant about guns (he admits he doesn't own any). Still, it's nice that Whitney has written a book on the subject that liberals can read and maybe become a little better informed.
