Despite ongoing tragedies, we're no closer to gun control

On the Sparks, Nev., school shooting, Paul Whitefield wrote Tuesday that punishing the shooter's parents was pointless. "In a nation awash in guns, a nation that has seen multiple mass shootings in the last few years -- often with guns legally obtained -- does anyone really think that making an example out of these parents will make a difference? "No. Either we as a nation deal with gun violence in a comprehensive way -- such as the expanded background checks and limits on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that Congress rejected in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre -- or we move on."
