But the hardest thing for us to accept is that, even if there were no guns, and even if there were places to lock up crazy people, this would still happen. People would still be killed. Human beings are problem-solvers, and we don't like to hear that we can't fix a problem completely, but I'm afraid that's something we all have to accept...
That's true... but up to this point we haven't even had an honest national conversation about what's happening,.. let alone made any kind of an effort to start working towards solutions.

I don't think there are easy answers or complete solutions... but I also don't think that doing absolutely nothing at all towards trying to change the situation is ever going to improve things either.
