Work to be done on both sides of the aisle

-A A +A

The Boston Herald published this editorial Aug. 6 on what can be done to combat mass shootings after massacres in Texas and Ohio.

Bullet-resistant backpacks are now being sold in major retail stores. The idea is that when the next school shooter opens fire in the hallway, fleeing children who are shot in the back will have a better chance of surviving.

It is a new consideration that children and parents have to make in 2019: Is my child dressed for style? Is she dressed for weather? Is she dressed for war?

The present condition is unacceptable. High-profile mass-shootings have become a normal occurrence and this weekend brought the scourge front and center when 31 were shot dead and more than 50 injured in Texas and Ohio.

These were innocent victims out shopping or enjoying a vibrant entertainment district.

It happens too often — laughter and joy turn to screams and horror.

Something must be done and something can be done.

Reacting to the shootings, Rep. Stephen Lynch got it right, saying, “I don’t know if there’s a single, one-hundred-percent solution, but there might be a hundred one-percent solutions.”
