4. part of the problem

We aren't allowed to acknowledge we have a problem.

We have far too many gun deaths in this country. That should be non controversial. And there's nothing wrong with having emotion about the fact that we out pace the world in gun deaths. (how can one NOT have emotion about that?)

But any attempt to bring this up brings forth a swarm of gun advocates that think any discussion of proposition to curb this problem is one step short of sending gun owners to death camps.

You can't have a serious rational discussion in all of that.

And so the problem just keeps on going.
