Am I missing something?

As we hear and react to the third mass shooting in a week, isn’t it obvious that we desperately need gun-control laws?

Absolutely no assault rifles.

I do believe that countries that have adopted stringent gun-control laws have seen a big reduction in mass shootings.

I read and listen to news all day long. I have yet to hear any of the people running for the Democratic nomination speak about gun control.

Have I missed something?
