    You might want to check the FBI statistics before you make that claim.

      The bottom line is the president is calling for a multi-front approach to solutions. I'm a gun owner and 2A advocate and a democratic socialist. In fact I wrote an essay on it for RKBA once upon a time.

      This is going to involve some restrictions,yes. It's going to involve increased services for mental illness and, I hope, as I said in my essay, some attention to domestic issues and abuse.

      It needs to, yes, address the illegal weapons on the street that are killing too many of my young brothers and sisters in the city. And lessen the mechanisms available for them to get these weapons. Like gun shows that don't require bG checks.

      This has to be a multi-tiered approach and yes, any change is going to piss somebody off. And two weeks ago I'd have argued against what I just typed. But I can't argue it in good conscience today. Sorry, I just can't.
