Do we have a gun crisis? [View all]

Gun related murders are down, but gun shooting sprees are up. Normally, you would think there would be a correlative decrease, but this very unusual.

While politicians argue over the manufactured Fiscal cliff crisis (notice that no one is talking about this anymore) we have a real gun crisis in the United States. If estimates are correct that there are 300+ million guns floating around what are the practical solutions to enforcing current regulations on the books or do we need more? Do we need to educate the populace more before they are allowed to own a weapon?
