But guns are the
issue; that's the single biggest stumbling block to making any kind of progress!
I don't know if parents teaching their children good values will completely eliminate all of the problem people. I think it's a far more complex matter. But it's a good place to start. The societal norms that say it's OK for parents to indulge their own selfish interests, time that's not being spent teaching their kids good values, isn't doing the kids any favors.
We've done every one of the proposed gun restrictions before (and we're still doing some right now), and they didn't help. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result.
