Beyond the gun culture

Better UTAH Director of Communications Isaac Holyoak recently spoke out on gun violence in America in an OpEd in the Salt Lake Tribune:

There are some who would prefer to see those thousands of shootings as isolated, random occurrences. A man in Connecticut picks up a gun on the same day as an unknown assailant kills two in Salt Lake County. But the data on this one is clear. An increase in gun ownership corresponds to an increase in gun deaths. If Sandy Hook teaches us anything, it should be that there are no more lone gunmen.
