A Noble Effort
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The National Gun Victims Action Council reports on their website that the vast majority of gun related murders in the United States, approximately 12,000 per year; and the 66,000 non-fatal shootings per year are committed primarily by people who have no legal right to possess their weapon. They have asked and I have asked in previous columns, how it is that communities that are impoverished have access to an abundance of weapons. The short answer is that the United States does not have a federal law that defines gun trafficking or straw purchasing as a crime. Adding to the difficulty of the issue is that there are federal laws that make it close to impossible for law enforcement or other advocacy organizations to obtain and coordinate crime gun trace information. The Gun Victims Action Council has pointed out, as have others, that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF); had been without a permanent director since the Bush Administration, until B. Todd Jones, was ju ...

One major factor is the revolving door of Wall Street lobbyists, lawyers, government regulators, and elected officials, which has created a shared culture and common world-view that undermines the drive for fundamental change. Economic and political actors are, after all, social beings and repeated interactions can create cohesion even among professed adversaries. The dynamic today in many respects echoes that of a century ago when American reformers established the institutions that remain the centerpiece of our regulatory apparatus, such as the Federal Reserve. Despite these reforms, fundamental changes to the practices and makeup of the banking community remained elusive and financial crisis returned with a vengeance 20 years later.
