This mother hit it right on the money. Moms were disgusted by Newtown. Our exposure to violent games and movies, and our nation's mental health issues are no worse than those in other developed nations. The only different thing in our society is the availabiity of firearms, large magazines and giant holes in our background check system. To say there is nothing we can do is to place our desire for easy access to guns above the lives of our kids and loved ones. Hats off to folks in Montana for taking a measured stand on common sense! By the way, "gun control" seems like an outdated term. Seems to me that we don't want to "control" people and guns; we just want to restore the right to live free of violence and fear of violence. Things are out of kilter, and reasonable middle of the road Americans like this mom need to step up more. Kudos!
