    armament of American society. Fewer people own guns now than at any point in the last 50 years, and we've reaped the dividends of that in lower overall levels of gun violence; our problem is a small number of gun hoarders, 25%-35% of the population, some of whom are committing terrorist acts like Newtown with their collections. Those types of large-scale killings seem to be on the increase even as overall violence levels go down.

    Stricter gun controls coming from a variety of directions can help slow the tide of guns in this country, and can give us data into who the traffickers are, who the hoarders are. Then we can deal with those people accordingly.

    End the gun shows.
