Another Fourth of July, another mass shooting. Given the circumstances, there will be more such shootings, many times over, until we get the changes that most Americans want.

My military friends report that every service member has personal responsibility for every weapon issued to them. If any weapon is neglected, misused, or diverted, the service member is personally and firmly held accountable. There is no room in our military for the lax standards introduced to the civilian gun market by recent decades’ Supreme Court decisions.
