  1. I thought that one of the lessons from the role of social media in the Arab Spring was that such public dissemination of protest is a step — an important step but only one step in a path toward the goal. I think there is recognition that further steps in the campaign for greater gun safety measures in this country include voting for members of Congress who share that point of view, for example. At least in this country, in contrast to the countries who had been under dictators for years, we have infrastructure for taking next steps. So while social media brought the protest to the people in both cases, I am more hopeful that in this case we can more effectively and successfully build on the step it has provided.
