For once, let's all ignore the "gun apologist bingo" comments, and brainstorm [View all]

on what each of us can do to change the fact that gun massacres are a daily occurrence in the USA, and only in the USA.

When events like this happen, the conversation always quickly devolves into the "it's not a clip it's a magazine, it's not a magazine it's a clip" crap. We all know what the arguments are ("you have to solve the mental health problems before you can touch gun laws," "all of you individuals are too small to go up against the gun lobby and will never make a difference so you shouldn't even try," "it is impossible to define which guns need to be outlawed," "are you going to outlaw cars too?" etc), and we all can guarantee that those who make these arguments will be swarming threads and trying to derail the conversation.

For once, please, let's just ignore them COMPLETELY. For once, please, let's talk about what we can do that is constructive and positive. For once, let's not waste our energy and our outrage in answering the nonsense.

Other than contacting EVERY ONE OF ALL OF OUR LEGISLATORS and demanding stricter gun control, what else can we do as individuals and as a group?
