Niagara Gazette —
It’s time to admit that the issue isn’t simply “guns” but rather violence across our culture. The heart of the problem isn’t how we interpret the Second Amendment but the fact that our nation is afraid to admit that we have an over arching problem of violence that hinges on a cultural desensitization to that violence and a fear of moving toward a solution.
The question of guns and gun related violence has to be addressed across the spectrum of all these subject areas of contemporary American society. Until we put everything on the table for a much-needed soul searching national discussion a reasonable solution will remain out of reach.
