What should be done to deal with gun issues?

After recent (and not-so-recent) school shootings, the public seems to be in an uproar over gun control. Both sides make valid points, but we want to know where you stand on the issue. Should the government ban weapons and guns and require mandatory background checks for ALL gun purchases? Or, does the issue lie in the realm of mental health and the lack of care available? Or, should the government stay out of it and just maintain the second amendment? Let us know where you stand on the issue of gun control (or lack thereof).

Very valid point. Although, while we are not in the political business, the effects of political decisions as well as the events that rock our citizens (whether political or otherwise) affect farmers and all others who may have children, who own guns.

The majority of information we offer is absolutely ag-based, and will continue to be. However, we believe it's important to be aware of issues outside of agriculture as well. Thanks for your readership, and we appreciate your input and opinions.
