Twenty-Four Hours, Two Cities, Thirty People Shot

In the wake of the shootings that took place overnight in Chicago, leaving thirty people injured, and in New York City, leaving two people dead and nine injured, I have posted a poll on my Facebook page.

Does the US need to rethink its gun ownership laws? Please vote at this link and weigh in on the discussion.

Obviously, the cause of mass shootings is incredibly complicated. Changing one factor is not going to be enough. But, would limiting guns help reduce violence? Why? Why not? What else would be helpful?

I am hoping to have a respectful discussion. People on all sides have passionate views, but if you just wanting to add vitriol to the discussion, I would prefer you bow out. Please remember, there are hundreds, possibly thousands, of people whose lives have been directly affected by the violence in the last 24 hours--let's be respectful in our discussion of what happened and what could be done to avoid these tragedies in the future.
