Preventing Mass Shootings Like the Vegas Strip Attack - The New York Times

We have too many guns in the US and we need politicians to start both saying so and setting gun number reduction objectives and meeting them. Surely, if we can bar cigarettes from the hands of some because it might kill them and others, why cannot we do the same for guns. It took a long while to get "here" on tobacco and let's not keep delaying what we need to do to start the graph headed down on number of guns in the US. The US has three times the guns per capita than where I am now in France. THREE TIMES. Why don't we set a goal to beat France? I would be a skeptical we can push Tunisia out of first place. Their gun ownership per capita is ONE ONE THOUSANDTH of what it is in the US. Yes, One One Thousandth of what it is in the US.
