As details of the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado emerge it is an unfortunate reminder that gun violence is a chronic public health issue unaddressed in this country. And thanks to the unaccountable dollars of groups like the National Rifle Association, it’s unlikely that crisis will be properly addressed anytime soon.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and for all Americans who must reckon, again, with the undeniable fact that this country’s love affair with guns only ends in tragedy.
