The shooting in Newtown wasn’t the only mass shooting in America in 2012 – it was the 16th. Every day, eight American children are shot and killed in America. We have reached a tipping point — we must admit that gun violence isn’t a series of one-off tragedies, but an epidemic caused by unregulated access to guns and ammunition in an already violent culture. Too many times we have mourned the lives of those killed by guns and then moved on quickly without making the kind of meaningful change that would prevent us from repeating this cycle over and over again.
