Absolutely. This is a problem that is unique and a detriment to society as a whole. It appears that the some of the NAYs do not know America's history. The founders first signed the declaration of Independence which specifically states: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. THEN they moved on and signed the Constitution 2 years later, affirming these rights within the constitution. 14th Article and 13th Amendment respectively point to the Federal Government needing to step in as the States seem either unwilling or incompetent to address this issue. So yes, let's get this done.
