In fact, tariff protection for the industry — which politicians often say is a vital national interest — goes back to the very beginning of the republic.

When Lane Murdock, a high school sophomore, heard that 17 high school students and educators had been killed in a shooting in Parkland, Fla., she says she felt numb.
