The Conservative Apologist: On Guns & Control

One of the darkest realities of our time is the regular occurrence of mass shootings; large-scale murders with firearms in the hands of troubled individuals.  Americans have not had a break from these types of massacres in quite a while.  There is usually at least one shooting event in the news at any given time, and this reality is not likely to change any time soon.  This is truly a bleak reality, and it is heartbreaking, but the question is, “What solution can be implemented to stop these mass murders?”
