Gun control lessons from Grundy

The killings at the Appalachian School of Law are at the center of a new book on how the issue of gun control is reported, according to this review. The author is quoted as observing this: "seventy-two stories described how the attacker was stopped, without mentioning the student heroes had guns. But almost the same number of stories (sixty-eight) provided precise details on the gun used in the attack."
