Reducing gun violence

August 14, 2019

To the editor:

Every nation has mental illness. Every modern nation has video games, schools without mandatory prayer, families without fathers, conservatism, liberalism, oppositional political parties and so on. The United States is unique in that we have regular mass shootings.

The United States also stands alone in one other respect -- the number of guns. Researchers point to this as the only reason behind our mass shootings.

Americans are not so unique or so stupid that we cannot take the actions that other nations have taken that have proven to be effective, and reduce gun violence. What we lack is the political will.

Until that changes, it is likely that the killing spree will continue.
