The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Times is using space on its front page to call for greater gun regulation in the wake recent deadly mass shootings.

Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. says the newspaper is running its first Page 1 editorial since 1920 on Saturday to "deliver a strong and visible statement of frustration and anguish about our country's inability to come to terms with the scourge of guns."

The Times ( says the editorial suggests drastically reducing the number of firearms and even "eliminating some large categories of weapons and ammunition."

The editorial comes after three people were fatally shot at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, last week and 14 people were killed and 21 injured in a shooting Wednesday at a social services center in San Bernardino, California.
