Letter: Reduce the number of guns
Why are people required to have practical and theoretical training and have to pass a test to drive a car? Surely a car is not as lethal as guns. So why not have a similar system for gun use?
It is clear and proved that the number of deaths from guns is directly related to the number of guns in a country. Until the number of guns is reduced, the killing will continue.
Why do ordinary people in the United States need assault weapons and multiple round cartridges? Let those lethal weapons be restricted to licensed gun clubs where they can be used under strict supervision of responsible people. Clearly, some people get a kick out of using them, so let them play in secure surroundings.
The rights of individuals are not superior to the rights of the victims. Both should have an equal chance to live out their lives.
