Gun violence is not a solvable challenge. Too diffuse, too widely defined, no particular act or legislation can possibly address it. It fits right up there with hunger, poverty, ignorance, sloth, greed, bad parenting, etc...there's just no way to get our arms around it UNLESS one is willing to take away all the guns from all the people. That's the only way to stop it. I guess I am trying to get some truth into the discussion.

Since I know the records show that, statistically, we don't have even a small problem, I don't have a recommendation and I sure can't articulate a challenge that can actually be worked to a worthwhile end.

I do know I don't want to give up anything. Not one right, not one weapon, not one big magazine, not the ability to purchase what I want when I want. Not for uncertain and feel good reasons that just won't solve anything.
