Perspectives on Gun Violence

Add your voice.

Like people all across the country and indeed around the world, residents of the Second District have been engaged in debating the appropriate role of guns in American society and culture. Here in the United States, there is division on many points regarding gun control and agreement on few. Around the world, however, other nations are baffled that we accept 100,000 gun shot victims a year as a normal part of life. If there’s one thing I know, it is that there is no problem either in personal or public life that is best resolved with a gun. I’ve written about my support for Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s proposed ban on assault weapons and President Obama’s sensible package in opinion pieces posted on here and here. Now I would like to hear from you. In the video above, you’ll find a small sampling of diverse opinions from around the Second District, from Culver City to Carson, Compton to the University of Southern California and places in between. Please weigh in with your opinion as well. All comments that maintain a level of civil discourse, regardless of point of view, will be posted. With hope — MRT
