    Switzerland is full of guns. They don't have these problems.

    The problem in America is a) culture, b) guns, and c) mental health issues. Realistically speaking, only one of those is addressable in the short term: mental health, by expanding Obamacare.

    Instead, you want Obama to spend his time chasing a completely futile policy goal (that is probably also impossible to implement, let alone pass).

    Yes, gun control laws are a good idea. No, they will not solve, or even noticeably affect, the problem in the short-term, or possibly even the long-term.

      we wouldn't have this problem, 'cause we already have more gun control laws than you can shake a stick at.

      What we don't have is a safety net that works.
