Gun violence in our country is an epidemic with multiple causes. No one change will solve the problem. We must attack it from multiple angles and through increased community support. We need resources for abused children, domestic violence survivors, mental health treatment and yes, common-sense gun safety laws.Bans on weapons of war and universal background checks are a good place to start. Parents should not be afraid to send their children to school, church, the mall or the movie theater.
A very successful night for candidates who are making gun safety a part of their platform. Democratic voters are noticing.
