Framing the Dialogue

Voices of Reason

Surprisingly there actually are voices of reason in the tragic school shooting.  Perhaps we will actually have a legitimate dialogue on the subject of mental health, coarsening of society and Hollywood’s role, and firearms.

As the inevitable debate begins about how best to implement more gun control I express hope that the more critical issue of mental health finds its way to the forefront of the dialogue.  After the tragic murders in Connecticut it is a hard position to take defending our Second Amendment rights.  I have little doubt that wafflely politicians will take the easy way out and pass some meaningless gun control law that won’t stand up to Constitutional scrutiny.  They whine and gnash their teeth that they “tried” and grumble about “activists” on the court.
