J.F. Kelly Jr. is right in blaming our declining culture on our fascination with violence, angry alienated young men, their clueless parents, the social media, the rap music lyrics and the mass shootings that are occurring in our country. But these problems are complicated and will take a long time, if ever, to resolve. In the present we can pass anti-gun legislation which will reduce the likelihood of more mass shootings. Thus we need to have more effective background checks. We must increase the age requirement to purchase a gun from 18 to 21 and must ban assault weapons.
