Change the dialog from “gun control” to “gun safety.” No one wants to feel they are being controlled. However, everyone wants to feel safe.
The NRA has had gun safety programs for a long time and could probably do more. Also gun manufactures have safety programs and could also do more. We live in a state with many villages with high suicide rates and other troubles involving guns. Private citizens could come together and purchase gun safes for those villages with high incidence of gun violence. It goes without saying that we need more mental health services.
But there must be a common ground that people can come together and find solutions.
