In the aftermath of yet another mass shooting, this one at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, the national debate regarding gun control again polarizes the nation.  According to the NRA, schools need to be armed in order to ensure the safety of our children, while many school districts are moving to arm teachers.  Pro-gun control activists again point to statistics which demonstrate the lax control of firearms and direct correlation to gun violence.  President Obama has put gun control reform at the top of his to-do list.  It appears to be the "Obamacare" moment of his second term.

The deaths of 26 people, 20 of which are children, is our watershed moment.  It is time for the United States to engage in an honest, serious discussion about gun violence, gun control and the extreme influence the NRA has on legislation and policy.
