Easier than when?

The three panels that compose Rob Rogers’ April 14 cartoon depict a National Rifle Association member as an obese, pointy-headed, presumably politically conservative character. One wonders as to how Mr. Rogers might depict a liberal-leaning, anti-gun type.

In the third panel, Mr. Rogers’ character, labeled “NRA,” asks why the accused student used kitchen knives “when guns are so easy to get.” This leaves open the question of, compared to when? Nowadays, the law-abiding go through all manner of background checks in order to purchase guns, something that didn’t used to be the case and which some maintain should not now be the case. 

So regarding the ease with which guns are allegedly gotten, “Compared to when?” remains a question Mr. Rogers doesn’t answer. How come?
