  •  question is then how to restrict such (0+ / 0-)

    privileged young men from being able to obtain such weapons.  I confess I have no 100% solutions

    •  That presumes that the only worthwhile (5+ / 0-)

      answer is one that solves the problem 100%.  I don't think it has to.  Like everything else in life there is going to be some balancing.  Inconvenience for some vs. a lower solvability rate for the problem.  The fact that some will be inconvenienced and the fact that we can't solve the problem with 100% certainty doesn't mean we don't try.

      •  100% is not my requirement for any solution (0+ / 0-)

        However I do take note of those who object to proposals I have put forth which would not prevent 100% of gun deaths and incorporate it into any proposals I put forth.  

        •  Well I don't hold anyone to that standard. (0+ / 0-)

          The most important thing is that we not let our inability to find the perfect cure stop us from trying. And that we not let the fact that there are multiple causes to these tragedies prevent us from trying to address any one or more of them.
