Hayley B Elkins wrote a blog post late last year following the shootings at a school in Sandy Hook. It’s not about the shootings, but rather about Hayley’s relationship with guns, and how it has changed over time. Looking on from the UK, I always find the US obsession with fire-arms difficult to understand. Yet this very personal piece was moving and informative in a way that’s utterly atypical of writing on this topic. It’s a truly brilliant read.
