Let me start by saying that all of the victims of the Naval Yard shooting are in my thoughts and prayers this should never have happened. This incident has started me to really thinking about the issue of gun control and safe zones or gun free zones. At one point in time I was reconciled to accept more invasive background checks believing they might just help. I am now on the other side of this issue. Tighter checks will not work the Naval Yard shooting has proven this. An insane man carrying a military clearance shows me that we really need to evaluate all areas of our gun control policies.
