    I am really relieved Obama went full bore on this. Been dealing with many aspects most of my life, starting with JFK when I was 11. My kids were in the same district as Columbine in April, '99. Son was a senior in a high school a few miles up the road; varsity wrestler for three years, at Columbine and their team at his school. I was a field supervisor for a local home care agency, one of my nurses took care of a lot of those kids.

    Been an RN since '77, hunted, and almost killed both my kids and myself in 12/93 (SAD) - with guns. The ongoing daily list of people killed nationwide since Sandy Hook is just horrible. Especially the kids caught in fights and murdered by parents. It doesn't really cover the ones maimed, especially to disability.

    We have to find ways to cut the numbers of these all these tragedies. It is not going to be done just by limiting magazines, assault weapons and other gun regulations. That is one important part, nowhere near the full attack needed on the problem. Which is part of why the gun legislation we have had was insufficient.
