    but that is a huge chunk of the pie chart here.

    We need to have mandatory background checks before you can buy a gun, and that includes a psych eval (or something of that nature - I'm not sure all that would entail). We also need to ban assault weapons altogether, full. stop.

    I absolutely agree that poverty, poor education, and mental health/illness should be addressed, but unless our government decides to put more money into those deeply needed programs (not likely right now), we can start with gun control.

    The tide is moving towards stricter gun restrictions, as a direct response to this. I think it's been a wake-up call to many Americans.
