Favors all the gun control we can get

In the wake of tragedies like the one in Columbine, TV bookers race to their Rolodexes to line up the usual suspects to explain how something like this could occur. So for the umpteenth time we get the gun-control advocates debating the NRA mouthpiece, and talking heads from the Christian Coalition and the ACLU locking horns over the value of posting the Ten Commandments on the school cafeteria wall.

Now, I’m certainly in favor of all the gun control we can get-but if we want to rebuild our frayed civil society, we’d better reload young people’s hearts and spirits at the same time. And while reading the Ten Commandments is great, living them is even better-particularly the biblical admonition about tending to the least among us. The TV bookers need to program their speed dials to include people around the country who are using family volunteering to keep kids connected to their own families as well as their communities.
