SARAH BETANCOURT – Massachusetts has the lowest US gun death rates, and John Rosenthal says mass shootings wonâ€™t stop without real national action.
ROB OKUN – Okay, guys, white guysâ€”all guysâ€”this is our moment to say, â€œEnough!â€ This is the moment to start a national â€œMen Against Gun Violenceâ€ campaign. Right after Newtown, women launched â€œMoms Demand Action for Gun Senseâ€ the day after the murder of 20 six and seven year-olds, and six staff at Sandy Hook elementary school. The day after!
ROBERT C. kOEHLER – â€œThe definition and practice of war and the definition and practice of mass murder,â€ I wrote last year, â€œhave eerie congruencies. We divide and slice the human race; some people become the enemy, not in a personal but merely an abstract sense â€” â€˜themâ€™ â€” and we lavish a staggering amount of our wealth and creativity on devising ways to kill them. When we call it war, itâ€™s as familiar and wholesome as apple pie. When we call it mass murder, itâ€™s not so nice.â€
