Newtown massacre victim's father: "The problem is not gun laws. The problem is a lack of civility.”

In emotional remarks given today on the future of gun control in the nation, Mark Mattioli – father of six-year-old James who was shot and killed in the Newtown, CT tragedy in December – said he doesn’t believe more gun laws will provide all the answers we need to deal with the problem at hand. 
“I believe the solution may not be as easy to implement as I might hope, but it’s a simple concept,” he said. “We need civility across our nation. What we’re seeing are symptoms of a bigger problem. This is a symptom. The problem is not gun laws. The problem is a lack of civility.”

Wonder if things like the Obama ad against Romney, "He's not one of us"would be included or if incivility is only practiced by people like me who disagree with the intellectual elites? Wouldn't it be nice to really be able to talk about incivility and point out real examples, even when they include the President's lack of civility?
