It is not an accident that we have so many gun deaths in the United States and it is not acceptable. It’s also not a mystery how to stop them. We need–at a  minimum–strong gun regulation or, as I believe, we need a complete ban on private firearm ownership in the United States.

But we also need people to withdraw support from politicians who preach hate, discrimination or the Us/Them dichotomy that allows acceptance of exclusionary policies, that promotes a culture in which it is acceptable to afford some people less than the full measure of their humanity and the dignity owed them for that humanity.
