It’s not about winning

New bills are being introduced in the Congress largely because of the Newtown massacre. Both sides are mobilizing their pressure groups in order to influence the final outcome. It is critical that we not see any attempts to minimize violence as an opportunity to merely win a position. No side has a foolproof path to preventing future massacres so it is critical that we keep what the real goal is in this search. Remember those innocent children and those heroic adults, and all of the victims of gun violence. Urge your representatives not merely to blindly defend your position but rather to jointly search for common rational steps that will be part of the solution.
