You see the president’s gun control speech as his next-to-finest hour (“Obama moves on gun violence,” Jan. 6 editorial), and Kathleen Parker said that we just have to do something (“Obsessed with guns,” Jan. 7 column).
Would you consider holding accountable the man whose policies loosened visa requirements to the point where the visas of the two terrorists who killed all those people in San Bernardino, Calif., were not even checked; or the political practice of “correctness” that inhibited not only neighbors from reporting suspicious activity, but almost unbelievably government security agencies from checking their social media information?
I don’t like seeing guns around. They do kill people. But the guns that kill people are most often in the hands of those whose behaviors were fostered by policies that have broken up families, attacked the work ethic, divided races, discouraged responsibility and promoted victimhood.
The great misdirection here is that the “mass killings” in the United States have nothing to do with terrorism, or gangs, or massive policy failures. It just has to be the guns.
Never miss a local story.
I wish it were true that you had only fallen for this act, but you are promoting it. It is only with courage and truth that we can solve this or any other problem. You offer neither.
