Wiretap: Just before the next brief, unfruitful gun law debate

The narrative of the Navy Yard shootings, and of the apparently mentally unstable shooter, at the Navy Yard becomes somewhat clearer. So, it seems, does the story of what comes next.

Aaron Alexis’s guns. Or was it just one gun? And where did the mentally disturbed Alexis buy it? Via the New Yorker.

Dana Milbank says gun control is RIP in Congress. Via the Washington Post.

Obama, Republicans and question of legitimacy. Via New York magazine.

Will Obama’s approval ratings doom Dems in 2014 and 2016? Via the Guardian.

A tiny election, a major setback for corporate charter school movement? Via the Atlantic.

There is an LA Times staff writer who either lives in Greeley, Colorado, or is staying there to cover the floods and the right-wing secession movement, or something. He helped write this story about the soggy, isolating aftermath of the rushing waters.
