What I'm reading on guns today:
- Gun sales spike after Newtown, other mass slayings
- Denver gun show draws huge crowd despite long background-check times (Same in Ohio, Wisconsin, NJ, RI,NC, Nevada, Iowa, Idaho, and many other states, with most citing fears of new gun laws.)
- California gun sales jump; gun injuries, deaths fall
- Colorado gun-control advocates and foes mobilize for new legislation

President Obama has named Joe Biden to lead a new task force on gun violence.
Obama said Wednesday that he supports the Second Amendment, which guarantees the right to bear arms, and highlighted the nation’s strong tradition of gun ownership. Yet, he said, the country’s leaders need to find ways to keep “weapons of war” out of the hands of the irresponsible few.
“There is a big chunk of space between what the Second Amendment means and having no rules at all, and that space is what Joe’s going to be working on to try to identify where we’ll find some common ground,” Obama said.
