Inslee: Address gun violence

The tragedy of Sandy Hook was unimaginable, but unfortunately not unfamiliar.

Any issue to address the issue of violence in our communities and our schools will be intolerable and in the coming weeks I will work with the Legislature to address this crisis responsibly. I don't have all the answers, but I know that the sooner we reject the extremes and embrace common sense, the sooner we'll be able to get a public health solution to this public health problem. Common sense tells us that this solution will involve mental health and keeping guns out of the wrong hands while respecting the right of my son to hunt and my uncle to defend his home.
