Howie,

I am not so naive as to believe that banning assalut weapons is a panacea. It is a start. Increasing mental health options for people is another start. But we just can't sit here and do nothing and wait for the next massacre.

When they kept raising taxes on cigarettes it did help convince some people to stop smoking. It was a start.

We have to begin somewhere.
