What do you see as the best way to address mass shootings such as the ones in Santa Fe, Sutherland Springs, and Las Vegas?

Neal M. Dikeman

United States Senate


If I had a silver bullet solution, I’d lay it out.  But no one does. This is not simple or fixable with federal action.  Shall we pass new gun laws, erode our founding fathers’ most basic protection against government overreach, and pretend that fixes such a devastating cultural issue so we can feel like we acted?  What will we do when another shooting happens anyway, and our “silver bullet” did not work? Let’s solve our crisis of community in our community, not from Washington.
