The Political Account: Examining our gun culture

I initially intended to write about the current state of our real estate market and the health of the economy within our region — this was not to be — as I, along with the rest of this country, have experienced sadness over this past weekend’s mass shootings that have rocked this nation.

It is very natural to want to place blame, but is dysfunctional in finding a preventative solution. These mass shootings have gone on too long without any meaningful action to combat the very root of the problem. We must identify that very root, so we can attack it thoroughly and cast no doubt on its return.
