Townhall | The Gun Discussion in American Culture

Townhall | The Gun Discussion in American Culture

Few issues spawn as much cultural, political, and social division in American society as do guns and the Second Amendment. And yet, at a time in our national evolution in which the horror of mass shootings has become routine, it is imperative that we begin talking, intelligently and collaboratively, about ending that horror. If we believe that thoughtful, influential leaders can and should be willing to engage in a civilized dialogue on how to best reduce gun violence in our country while also preserving the constitutional rights of responsible gun owners, here is where that very nonpartisan, very difficult, and absolutely imperative conversation can begin.
