The trouble with "having a conversation about guns" is that the ignorant drown out the the knowledgeable and hysteria drives the legislation. Hysteria guarantees that 1) the solution will not fit the problem; 2) the routine answer - disarm law abiding citizens - doesn't keep guns out of the hands of people intent on violence as our European friends know but choose not to admit; 3) the laws passed in such a frenzy to demostrate "caring" will have unintended consequences far more troubling than a few thousand dead annually at the hands of nutters whom the system chose to ignore until too late.
