Newton, Connecticut, a national conversation, and two real solutions
In the wake of the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, some are already transitioning from mourning to impractical solutions.

Enough madness. There are two real solutions that would cause short-term pain but long-term societal benefits.
