A difficult solution
One must wonder about the Jan. 4 letter “Don’t restrict firearms” calling the recent Sandy Hook School shooting a “tragedy,” commenting that parents of murdered children will never be the same and then threatening congressmen for voting against a ban on assault weapons.
The writer states that “the solution is not easy.” I wonder whether Ike was thinking that way in June of 1944 or Lincoln was pondering that idea before signing the Emancipation Proclamation?
This seems the standard excuse for advocates of all sorts of guns and their high-capacity magazines, but our country wasn’t built on easy solutions. Let’s take it one step at a time and urge our congressional representatives to use their common sense and stop these mindless killings.
