A national sympathy card to the Sandy Hook families and communities.

We are better than this "A national conversation on how we can prevent gun deaths and injuries."

Also if you get a chance, read these:

"Of course, now is the time to talk about gun control in the U.S." by Tim Denis, The St. Catherines Standard 

"The right to own a weapon doesn’t trump the right of a six-year-old kindergartener to be alive."

And another good one from The Washington Post by E.J. Dionne Jr.

"Now is the time for meaningful gun control"

"...we will have to avoid the paralysis induced by those who cast every mass shooting as the work of one deranged individual and never ever the result of flawed policies. We must beware of those who invoke complexity not to further understanding but to encourage passivity and resignation." 

"After mass shootings, it’s always said we must improve our mental-health system and the treatment of those who may be prone to violence. Of course we should. But this noble sentiment is too often part of a strategy to evade any action on guns themselves.

Not this time. Americans are not the only people in the world who confront mental-health problems. We are the only country that regularly experiences horrors of this sort. The difference, as the writer Garry Wills has said, is that the United States treats the gun as a secular god, immune to rational analysis and human intervention."
