Since moving to a state with a large percentage of gun owners – I’m terrified of allowing my child to go on play dates. How do I broach the subject of gun ownership with other parents? I certainly do not want my child in a home that keeps firearms. More

A North Carolina public school terrified students last week by having a masked gunman burst into their classroom and “rob” them with a fake pistol. What the hell? More
An 8-year-old Louisiana boy shot his 90-year-old caregiver Thursday evening. Every news outlet covering the story is blaming the video game he was playing before he pulled the trigger. No one wonders why an 8-year-old had access to a loaded gun to “play” with.
I don’t want to hear how the dad should have been paying better attention and this was somehow his fault, because any parent with a small child can tell you that they are amazingly observant and can find things well before a distracted adult can. This poor dad and his poor little boy who is far too little to understand what happened. I don’t GET the need to own a gun. I don’t understand it. But even moreso, I really don’t understand gun owners who leave their firearms lying around out in the open and loaded. More
It’s been a few months since the community of Newtown, Connecticut was ravaged by a horrible tragedy that took the lives of 20 children and six adults. So how thoughtful of the NRA to run robo-calls in Newtown asking them to denounce gun control legislation. More

The national figures have chosen to take their careers in a new direction, but one that seems incredibly fitting. Today, they announced a new campaign to combat the gun rights lobby in our government and to look for solutions to gun violence. And I just have to say that as a parent, I’m thankful to this extraordinary couple for stepping forward and taking the lead on such an important political issue in our country. More

A young boy is dead after another tragic gun accident, but I don’t think this is the time to argue about gun control. More
Another surprising fact about this awful news story? Authorities said the relative had not been drinking. One would think that if you were at a Halloween party where children are present, you would be extra careful about firing a loaded weapon, even if you are trying to shoot a vermin you see way off in the distance.

More details are coming out about the shooting at Perry Hall High School in Baltimore County, Maryland yesterday. The first day of classes was interrupted when gunfire broke out in the school cafeteria. One student was critically injured, but the tragedy could have been far more expansive. From the sounds of Robert Wayne Gladden, Jr.‘s Facebook page, the school shooter did not want to survive the attack he made on his fellow students.
It seems almost unreal. I cannot believe that I am here, writing about another shooting. The national nightmare of gun violence simply does not seem to be slowing down. Today, it comes from Perry Hall High School in Baltimore County, Maryland. More
It is becoming an increasingly troublesome and disturbing trend this summer. Another week, another mass shooting, costing innocent lives and wreaking havoc on communities all over the country.
