No True Answers

When Obama was elected in 2008 on a rational level I wasn't all that enamored but on an intellectual level I understood the symbolism of his election.

In the aftermath of Newtown, the debate has moved towards gun control. I may be skeptical of its effectiveness but maybe it's just one of those "just do it" things. I don't know.

One of my clients is from Wichita, Kansas. It was an interesting conversation about guns and America. She grew up around guns as her family were hunters. But that was different than sleeping with a .357 Magnum as he ex-husband used to. She's ok with Obama's push for gun control even though she too is skeptical. She brought up the point that in Australia citizens turned in their guns - except the criminals and all hell broke loose.

As for background checks, she's of the opinion their not enforced enough.

On the other hand, she's not to crazy about what the NRA is proposing although there is some validity to it. It just may not be feasible.

In the end, we just need the strength to accept there are no true answers to such evil acts.
