The problem is too many guns everywhere. Kept at home in unsafe storage, they are much too accessible for accidents and suicides as well as for settling grudges.

Mass shootings now average nearly two a week. They continue to happen faster than most people can keep track of how many times an anguished public cried out “Never again!” only to have it happen again and again and again.

This month marks the 10th anniversary of the slaughter of 20 first graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Next Feb. 14 marks five years since the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 14 students and three educators dead and 17 students wounded.

Next April is the 24th anniversary of the 13 murders at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, the first of the “never again” school shootings.
