Lord only knows what you need to see at this point.

When our rates of gun homicide are 30 x's greater than France's...

What do you need to see? 50 x's?

We're committing 12 x's the gun violence that the rest of the Western world sees. What do you need to see? 20 x's?

We're at the bottom of the barrel globally. What do you need us to be? On par with countries in the throes of active war?

God forbid we ever actually meet the standards of what you'd consider to be an actual epidemic.

So you agree, we should restrict access to guns.

Better training and education would necessarily reduce the pool of people who can own firearms.

It's official: we just disagree on the degree of improved gun control.
