The shootings in Centennial, Colorado bring up a topic I have addressed before. Obviously our problems with gun violence go beyond just "guns," not even just one side of the political equation. But if writing about this can stop one student on the border of bringing a gun to school for revenge, I will write this column again and again...
Once again we're going to hear how more guns in schools, or wherever, will solve children with guns killing students and teachers. Once again we'll hear how regulating guns will solve the gun problem.

What if I told you there was something you could do, right now: yes, "you," about this. It might be a small thing, but still a lot of "small" can make a big difference. What you could do would not offend gun rights advocates. What you might do wouldn't offend gun regulation advocates. And it could help cut down on gun violence: especially if we reach out to others, and our youth.
