  •  We're long past "persuasion", they've been (0+ / 0-)

    arming themselves for 4 yrs.  And while I agree the Civil Rights movement was effective, this isn't the 60's anymore.

    How about we actually focus on restoring our social safety nets?

    How about we actually focus on becoming a community again?

    How about we actually focus on policies that will help the most Americans?

    Free mental health services, a living wage, corporate responsibility???

    Those things will cut our violent outburst in half, easily.

    Make it unnecessary for anyone to believe they actually need a firearm?
