It would be good for ‘a massive cultural shift’ towards European gun control, says New York Times columnist


New York Times columnist David Brooks argued that the United States should be more like Europe when it comes to society’s views and policies on gun control and possession.

While discussing red flag laws and enacting tougher gun control policies, Brooks said he would be willing to give up some personal freedoms for what he hopes will be a safer society.

“It would require a gigantic culture shift in this country. An overhaul of how we think about privacy, an overhaul of how we think about the role government plays in protecting the common good,” Brooks said during from a segment on PBS’s “News Hour.”

“I think that would be something. I think it would be good not only to avoid the shootings, but also to live in a society where we care more intimately for each other. And I would be willing to give up some intimacies for this to happen,” Brooks said. “But for many Americans, it would just be a massive cultural shift to look at our community and look at our common good in a more frankly European style. I think it would benefit our society in a whole host of areas, but it’s hard to seeing that kind of culture change to a society that’s been pretty individualistic for a long, long time.”

In the wake of the mass shootings in Colorado and Virginia, President Biden has expressed a desire to sign gun control legislation before the end of this session of Congress.

“The idea that we still allow the purchase of semi-automatic weapons is sick,” Biden said. “It has no socially redeeming value…Not a single solitary justification other than profit for gun manufacturers.”

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., recently said a “conversation” needed to take place about how some law enforcement agencies across the country have said they will refuse to enforce certain gun laws and declaring the themes a “Second Amendment sanctuary state.” .”

“I think we need to have a conversation about whether we can continue to fund law enforcement in states where they refuse to enforce these gun laws,” Murphy said. “I’m going to talk to my colleagues about what our approach to this problem should be. But 60% of the counties in this country refuse to enforce national gun laws. We have to do something about it.”
