Today's Boston Globe editorial wrote:
As more and more Americans suffer the impact of gun violence, the pathetic response of politicians - "thoughts and prayers," anyone? - cannot endure forever.
There is no shortcut: If we want fewer gun victims, we need fewer guns.
We agree that responses from politicians are routine and pathetic. But how sad that even the Boston Globe can only ask for "fewer gun victims" instead of having vision and courage to want no gun victims (and no guns) at all.
We need to do more than aspire to be mediocre.
