Can you link to it, gator? I couldn't find it online. Doug Hill is a conservative with whom I have had many discussions and for whom I have great respect, though we often have a different point of view. I'd like to read it.gator wrote: Good Opinion Piece in the GDT today. "A Shooting Solution" by Doug Hill; A Marine Corps Veteran if Vietnam.

From the event...
"The goal is to provide a space where young people can meet and share their thoughts, feelings, questions and ideas regarding the recent wave of youth leadership and action happening across the country.
Participants will be encouraged to explore how they can effectively increase youth agency locally and beyond, in the short term and the long term."

This is just answering the people who keep on saying "how many guns do you need" As with everything, it depends on the person. your needs may not be the same as others' needs.
I agree. I'd like to more coverage of the after effects and a lot of coverage of demonstrations in support of gun safety and discussions of legislation. I don't need to see much coverage of the shooter at all. I want to see coverage that leads to legislative change via voting.sugarmagnolia wrote: BTW the survivors of mass shootings are victims as well. Such trama can have pyschological effects years after the event. So to just dismiss the event with a report of the dead is not enough. Indeed, not enough media attention is being spent on the psychological effects on the survivors and on society as a whole.
