You are 83 percent more likely to be punched in the face by someone you know than by a stranger.

4-year-old Ottawa boy injured in shooting

I'm glad:

That the boy was not badly hurt.


That the NRA will not be calling for an armed police officer in every house to help prevent similar situations.

Opinion: Renewed draft could curb gun violence

Sadly, even a short amount of time spent researching the recent suicide rates for those in the military, including those who have served overseas and those who have not, will show that a draft would probably be a poor form of mental health screening, unless something changes significantly. We already fail to provide the necessary help for those who make important sacrifices on our behalf. Making that sacrifice mandatory would not be the panacea you imagine.
