Like blatantninja have said: "The answer is cultural change" Let's get it rolling by dealing with assault weapons.
I thought I've made it perfectly clear over the years that my standard use of "y'all" is to mean "not (just) you personally, but the people that share the viewpoint you're expressing". It's my way of both depersonalizing the argument and acknowledging that the viewpoint under discussion (whatever that happens to be at the time) goes beyond a single wayward soul.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
