First, we must recognize that the U.S. is different in many ways from other countries who have limited and controlled the sale and possession of guns.

"A line already snaked around the building shortly after the three-day event began at 3 p.m., and the parking lot was jammed" at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va., wrote Justin Jouvenal of The Washington Post:
