  •  It's where I'd like to start. (7+ / 0-)
    The tightest gun laws in the world won't stop the violence if we ignore poverty, poor education and mental health/illness crises in this country.
    And yes, I work on the other issues every day, both on and off the clock, whether through teaching preschoolers and kindergarteners, writing letters to the editor, counseling adults and children with mental illnesses, or helping others do so.

    But at the end of the day, it still starts with the guns.
