Given the media hype over "mass shootings", I think the very best way to address this situation it to allow for gun ownership, across the board, with licensing: allowing for home and public carry. If you take a good look at how these tragic events are occurring, it involves a shooter targeting unarmed civilians. I do believe the number of these incidents will DROP SIGNIFICANTLY if civilians were in a position to defend themselves with guns. Gun ownership and the proper training in the use of firearms helps bring about a level of civility.

When cops show up and/or engage only after the damage has been done, gun ownership is NECESSARY.
