We Can Live Without Guns. Really.

We can live without guns, without automatic weapons, without semi-automatic weapons. Really, we can. The entire discussion has till now been framed by certain lobbying groups in terms of rights. But almost nothing has been said about choosing to lay down rights for the sake of a greater good. The school shooting is horrific enough. But terrible as this tragedy is, it is tiny compared to the fact that 15,000 Americans died as a result of gun violence this past year. Gun control wont solve everything, but it is a first and necessary step to putting an end to easy murder.
