Since 9/11, America has responded aggressively to the danger of terrorism, taking extraordinary measures, invading two countries, launching military operations in many others, and spending over $800 billion on homeland security.Since 9/11, 74 people have been killed in America by terrorists, according to New America. In that same period, more than 150,000 Americans have been killed in gun homicides, and we have done ... nothing.The website shootingtracker.com documents that in the first 207 days of 2015, America had 207 mass shootings.In 2008, Japan had just 11 gun homicides.Jindal at least suggested that states follow or even strengthen laws to make sure that mentally unstable people can't buy guns, but this has placed him beyond the pale for the gun lobby. This is partly because in June 2008, the Supreme Court broke with 200 years of precedent and – in a 5-4 decision written by Justice Antonin Scalia – created an individual right to gun ownership that has made common-sense regulation of guns much harder.
