Framing the gun debate

Last note for now. Josh Marshall makes an excellent point:

What would make a real difference would be a society where there were radically fewer guns, where buying a gun meant getting a license, needing to follow specific safety guidelines, where you couldn't build your own armory, where you had to carry insurance to own a weapon (like you do with a car and most everything else), etc.

Those of us who see the current situation as not just non-ideal but actually a sort of societal sickness need to start thinking way beyond things like closing the gun hole loophole.

Yes. How come you have to get 20 hours of training to drive a car but not to carry a firearm in public?
