Sea change in thinking needed regarding guns

It isn’t just Newtown. For too long, Americans have been using guns to solve personal problems. For too long, we have been cowed by the National Rifle Association and the gun lobby.

Why are law-abiding gun owners so afraid of reasonable gun legislation that would protect all of us?

We need the media to inform the public about daily gun deaths in the United States compared to daily gun deaths in other Western democracies. A sea change in thinking is needed here.
