Following the recent school shooting in Nashville, it's essential to move beyond the empty rhetoric of "thoughts and prayers" and focus on evidence-based solutions to reduce gun violence and mass shootings. While many on the right only pay lip service to improving mental health, there are at least ten concrete policy proposals that could significantly reduce the number of mass shootings. These include ending the gun show loophole, implementing universal background checks, mandatory waiting periods, and banning high-capacity weapons for those under 25. Additionally, mandatory gun insurance, community support letters for those under 25, and banning certain weapons are also viable options. While no single policy will prevent every mass shooting, taking action on these measures will go a long way towards keeping people safe from those who seek to do harm.
