On the April 22, 2013 Charlie Rose show David Remnick exploited the Boston Marathon bombing to push for more gun control as he told the PBS host: "We see yet another act which might have been a Hell of a lot more difficult to pull off with effective gun control." In a discussion about the Tsarnaevs terrorist plot the editor of The New Yorker pondered where they got their "pistols from?" and claimed that while he didn't "want to politicize" the tragedy went on to do just that as he complained: "Within a week's time a very, very, very weak gun control bill gets defeated."
