    We may get through without a new AWB. We may not. All the media conversations have focused on guns, guns, guns, and .....guns.

    But will there not be further discussion on root causes of mass shootings? I'm fearful we will have lost the chance to really change key areas that develop sociopaths. Focusing on a culture of violence, mental health, drug use (legal and illegal), disfunction in the family. Where are the bills being put forth to address these areas?

    Speaking of disfunction in the family, here in AZ there is literally no money for prevention services, none at all. The only time a family recieves services is after a crisis.

    As you write your reps about the AWB, I'm feeling we need to add that we can't stop looking at how to stop these events from unfolding again.

    Stay focused on the issue. It's all about guns and the 2nd Amendment.

    This is not about making children safer. More children were killed by abortion in the first week of January 2012 than have been killed by all the guns in America combined in the previous 40 years since Roe V Wade.

    This is not about mental health. Maybe a photo-op for a politician, but a program like that cost federal dollars earmarked for other programs. In the long run Hurricane Sandy survivors have a better chance with FEMA than this does.

    Hollywood gets a pass because of their liberal right wing stance which supports the current administration.

    The POTUS wants a Chicago style blue print for American gun laws. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Govern...campaign=Feed:+BigGovernment+(Big+Government) . After all, it has worked so good there. Not in stopping violent crime or making anyone safer - but, it has handicapped law abiding citizens from owning guns.

    The real issue is guns and the anti-gun crowd taking every advantage to exploit the facts and make inroads into their ultimate goal of registration, confiscation and dismantling the 2nd Amendment.
