Our country has a gun violence problem and we can either refuse to acknowledge it or create solutions that keep our families safe while protecting our freedoms. According to Merriam-Webster, “neglect implies giving insufficient attention to something that merits one’s attention.”
My experience as an engineer has taught me to make data-based decisions, so let’s consider the data. In the U.S., 100 people die from gun violence every day and our gun homicide rate is 25 times that of other high-income countries according to a 2016 study published in the American Journal of Medicine. We see the evidence in daily news headlines and cannot continue to be negligent.

The murder rate has declined in the last several decades.
We DO NOT have a gun problem in America.
An engineer, are you? Gawd, I hope you didn't design any bridges I need to drive over .......

|Ms. Thomas is grasping for the "rose-colored glasses" solution instead of facing reality.|
The reality is that our rights are under attack, and that the 'data' she cites is suspect because it is agenda-driven.
We cannot deprive rights and protect them at the same time.
Ms. Thomas needs to wake up and smell the coffee.
