    is what has gone wrong in our society that any one even thinks about doing this? It is a pretty new phenomenon, I believe the first one happened in 1966. Now they seem like a yearly occurrence.

    We can certainly look at the gun but guns have been around since the beginning of our country and yet there were never the mass shootings and the "accidents" of kids getting shot that we see today.
    My father kept a loaded 30.06 in his closet which we had full access to yet we never touched it. It was there for quick use on predators that came around the farm.

     I followed that tradition my kids never touched the thing either yet they knew how to use it if they needed to.

    We can talk gun control all day long but it feels like a band aid for a wound that requires emergency surgery.
