I was 18 years old and a precinct worker for Robert F. Kennedy when a 15 cent bullet changed not only my life but the life of a nation as well. As a 10 year military veteran I am not against guns. But at the same time, with every gun related tragedy comes the inevitable national kneejerk reaction for some kind of gun control. After a few months the dialogue dies down, very little is ever done and thousands more continue to die every year until the next high profile shooting occurs. Lets face it, we are a violent nation, but we simply don't have the collective will to go mano y mano with the gun lobby.
