All this being said, it is no longer the 1950's. Many gun owners are not passing gun safety and responsibility along to their youth. Mental health is paramount to responsible gun ownership, and our population has grown way beyond what our nation's founders could ever imagine.
Change is always hard. The solution is very plain -- but no one wants to back it. First we need to scrap all of the present gun laws on the books. They amount to nothing more than putting a Bandaid on a bleeding artery.
