Roving Camera 5-24-18: What do you think it would take for America to reform its gun laws?

I think people will have to keep trying to change laws, but young people will always be able to purchase guns one way or another. They need to put metal detectors in all schools.—Amanda, Mother, Roxbury
Elected officials need to push for change. Shootings are happening more frequently. People need better mental health treatement.—Ashesha Rockett, Student, Hyde Park
I believe it would take something happening to their own family members in order for Congress to take action. The tragedy would have to hit home.—Jeff Davis, Guest Services Representative, Roxbury
I think it’s everyone’s responsibility to make change — mental health workers, law enforcement. It’s going to take the whole country coming together and making sure we take action. —Leonard Tshitenge, Poet, Roxbury
I think there would need to be a shooting at an NRA convention or some convention where Republicans are gathered. Until it happens to them, they’re not going to care. —Rachele Dudley, Paralegal, Roxbury
More shootings in schools? But then again, that doesn’t change things. I really don’t know. I guess there’s no limit.—Tawanna Smith, Small Business Banker, Boston
