Rolling Stone is celebrating the fact that it has been admittedly pro-gun control–and has been pushing gun control–for nearly 40 years.

Rolling Stone quotes Wenner saying, “It all started with Lennon, that tragedy. Trying to make sense of it.

Wenner said, “It became obvious that the beginning and end of this was the NRA.”
