  •  The effort must be step-by-step and sustained (13+ / 0-)

    Even when (ever the optimist) measures a passed, the result will not be an immediate, significant reduction in casualties (likely to take decades depending what is done) so there will be a push-back from opponents trying to use that as proof these measures won't work and needlessly infringe their "freedoms".

    Therefore, what will be very important is sustained public education and visibility of the issues including positive PR on the benefits to society.

    My humble proposal is for the people who stand on the front line of dealing with gun related casualties and those responsible to protect the public particularly children, to make public information campaigns talking about the importance to them and the public in simple terms, and repeat daily. This could include first-responders such as police, firefighters, ER doctors and medical service providers, teachers, mayors, Congressmen, Presidents and even entertainers and sports figures.

    "It gets better".
