Saturday Link Love: Facebook, the Second Amendment, Billy Graham, and Parkland

Saturday Link Love: Facebook, the Second Amendment, Billy Graham, and Parkland February 24, 2018

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

Inside the Two Years that Shook Facebook: An Changed the World, on Wired—“IT’S NOT EASY to recognize that the machine you’ve built to bring people together is being used to tear them apart, and Mark Zuckerberg’s initial reaction to Trump’s victory, and Facebook’s possible role in it, was one of peevish dismissal.”

How the NRA Resurrected the Second Amendment, on Vox—“As Bogus noted in a 2000 law review article, ‘from the time law review articles first began to be indexed in 1887 until 1960, all law review articles dealing with the Second Amendment endorsed the collective right model.'”

‘Black Panther’: Why Not Queen Shuri? on Hollywood Reporter—“‘He’ll catch up,’ a defiant Nakia says, providing a glimpse into another theme running throughout the movie: it is clear that T’Challa as King and Black Panther cannot live without these women; however, we are left wondering why they are not in charge in the first place.”

Where Billy Graham Missed the Mark, on CNN—“The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. electrified the nation when he gave his “I Have a Dream” speech, but there was another famous American pastor who was not impressed.”

What I Saw Treating the Victims From Parkland Should Change the Debate on Guns, on The Atlantic—“I thought that I knew all that I needed to know about gunshot wounds, but the specific pattern of injury on my computer screen was one that I had seen only once before.”

The Mental Health System Can’t Stop Mass Shooters, on the NYT—“What options did I have? It was clear to me that he did not have a psychiatric illness that would justify an involuntary hospitalization, but I was reluctant to release this man whose story echoed that of so many mass shooters.”
