Letter: Some common sense on guns, please

Wednesday, October 04, 2017

Respectfully to all gun owners, I would like to see a ban on rapid-fire automatic weapons where you can spray bullets into a crowd and kill 59 and wound over 500 people in minutes.

These weapons capable of mass killing are just as bad as hand grenades, rockets, land mines, bozookas – things you certainly wouldn’t bring on a hunting trip.

We need common sense gun laws that still allow us to keep all non-military guns. Our government has a responsibility to do everything it can to protect its citizens. Common sense, non-partisan gun legislation would finally make a small measure of progress towards a more civilized society.
