MOVING TO FRONT FROM OCTOBER 2--UPDATED
Glenn Reynolds (University of Tennessee) leads the way as usual. President Obama is disgusted, as well should we all be. Reynolds's disgraceful irrationality on this subject is of longstanding. He really is "part of the problem."
UPDATE: A reader sends along this apt 2012 article about gun control. He writes: "This is an issue where there aren't really two sides to the debate that should be seriously considered. This is an issue where there are the facts about gun control and mass killings, and then there are awful rationalizations for the carnage offered by the likes of Glenn Reynolds. As someone who fills out the U.S. News surveys, I am factoring in to my assesment of the reputation of the University of Tennessee the "disgraceful" as you said antics of this facilitator of murder."
ANOTHER: William Page (Florida) sends along another apt piece, noting the utter insanity of thinking that it would contribute to public safety to have armed civilians in the middle of an unfolding crime scene.

In case law professors want to know. Note that the poll did not include a number of excellent journals (like Ethics or British Journal for the History of Philosophy or Philosophy of Science), because they only publish in particular sub-fields of philosophy, rather than more broadly.

Alas, another life taken by cancer to report today: Professor Massey was a distinguished constitutional law scholar, who spent most of his career at UC Hastings, before moving in 2012 to take up the Daniel Webster Chair at the law school at the University of New Hampshire. I will add a link to a memorial notice when one appears.
UPDATE: An obituary.
