How many more Republicans have to be shot before the U.S. Congress will consider stronger gun control laws?
See "James T. Hodgkinson: Illinois Man Identified as Suspected Gunman in Virginia Shooting," NBC News.
I don't believe today's shooting of a number of Republican legislators in Alexandria will have much effect on Congress passing tougher legislation on gun licensing, access, and use. Despite the fact that more people are killed in the US as a result of gun violence than any other country in the world.

At the very least, there should be a recognition for the need for differentiated laws between urban and rural areas.
