Sign Gun Control Petition Now

I had a topic in mind for today’s post but in light of the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, that can wait until another day. As a father of three, the thought of children being killed by a gunman is horrifying beyond any comprehension. I have written before that I support stricter gun control. The research on gun violence across states and countries supports the view that limiting access to guns helps reduce gun violence. Common sense tells us the same. We have to make access to counseling and mental health help easier and access to guns way harder. And despite the inevitable protestations, now is exactly the time to be having this debate. So head on over to the White House web site and sign the petition for federal action on gun control.
