Another school shooting

“Lock her up” was heard many times during the 2016 presidential campaign. It’s time to revise that refrain. With Tuesday’s school shooting near Denver, I suggest “lock them up.” 

Like I did during President Obama’s tenure, I urge President Trump to convene a Camp David-style summit on gun safety, similar to what President Carter did when he invited old warriors Anwar Sadat of Egypt and Menachem Begin of Israel to Maryland in 1978. In case anyone needs reminding, the peace agreement that was reached after nearly two weeks of negotiations still is in effect today.

The president needs to take a page out of the Carter playbook and sequester all the critical players (i.e. NRA, 2nd Amendment proponents, ACLU, parents of shooting victims and more) until they agree on common ground (AKA federal legislation). This crazy, unprovoked violence must stop now.
