Nice piece, Jon. I love the pee sitting down analogy. I think the conclusion that can be drawn is that curbing gun violence is not a left or right issue (red or blue state), not only a crime or extremist issue, not only a mental health issue, or a regulatory issue -- it's all of the above. The country is saturated with guns and blood shed by gun wounds. Two things need to happen: 1) fewer guns in fewer people's hands; 2) gun violence needs to be analyzed and tracked nationally by an organization like the CDC.

I think we will need to figure out who is peeing on the toilet seat and floor (or preaching the right to unfettered pissing) and make them all sit down until they can aim better.

Take care, friend!
