Will Guns Help Settle The 2014 Midterms?

 The fight over gun control isn’t finished. Last month’s school shooting in Washington appears to have solidified support for a ballot initiative in the state calling for stricter background checks on gun buyers. It’s also an issue in the Colorado gubernatorial race, where a mass shooting in a theater led to stricter gun-control legislation.
