Where do we go next on gun control?
The country is reeling from yet another school shooting and gun reform advocates are once again calling on Congress to take meaningful action to stop the epidemic of gun violence. A majority of Americans favor some type of gun safety regulations; however a minority of Congress continues to block meaningful legislation. Tom Mauser, whose son Daniel was murdered in the Columbine high school shooting in 1999 says Democrats need to change their messaging around this issue. Mauser has been an activist on this issue for more than 20 years says most gun owners are open to reasonable arguments about the role of firearms in America, and he says we need to also shift our attention to the gun industry and focus on how they’ve lied to people, put people’s lives at risk and have bought politicians.
