I found Sunday’s front page featured an interesting juxtaposition. One story (“As thoughts of Vegas fade, gun bills slow”) talks about how the fervor to make bump stocks illegal is waning a month after the shooting in Las Vegas. This dangerous device may not be banned despite knowing how deadly it can be. The other story (“Bounce houses: Fun for kids, but growing danger”) is about how dangerous bouncy houses can be and how more regulations are needed for them.
So, more regulations for bouncy houses and not for assault weapons?
