On April 24th, SF columnists debate gun control laws, the best way to analyze the recently released CIA torture memos, and the possibility of Newsom smirking himself all the way to the White House.

Mark Morford foresees a “less winkingly slick” Gavin Newsom as President in 2016. Chron

Tim Redmond thinks you should tell BART what you think about their police force at their upcoming public meeting. SFBG

Tyler Hickman thinks guns don’t kill people, people raised by single parents/school drop-outs/those who “hang around the wrong friends” kill people. Chron

Ann Mizel, on the other hand, is pretty sure the guns themselves aren’t helping matters. Chron

We can’t just close the door on the recently released memos documenting American interrogators’ inhumane torture practices. A bipartisan panel would be more effective than a congressional investigation. Chron
