Letter: Connect the gun to the source
After reading the latest crime reports involving local robberies and the Atlanta assault-weapon shooting in the school, I am left with these questions: Exactly what weapons were used and where did they come from?
In light of our concern about some gun control in this country, it is very relevant to report information about the weapons used during crimes. When you report that a man held up a store brandishing a gun, I want to know what gun it was, did he have a permit, was it stolen,or was it someone else’s.
The man in Atlanta who could have killed more children this week as he entered a school with an assault weapon and evidently had many more weapons available to him is another case where I want to know where he got those weapons and how. Every story involving a gun needs to connect the gun to its source so we can be an informed society.
