Letters to the Editor

Gun control just causes problems | Letters

Editor,

The real danger to the public and our children are those among us who advocate disarmament.

These individuals have no moral equivocation with their actions for they do so with the approval of their own twisted sense of compassion.

That they have blood dripping from their hands is of no concern to them. It is more important that they feel good concerning their efforts to protect the children and the public.

That gun free zones are proven killing zones does not enter into their thought process.

Israel in 1974 trained and armed their school teachers after a shooting that left 34 of their children dead. The result of that decision is there has been no school shootings since 1974.

I don’t understand how such people professing care for children are so comfortable with blood dripping form their hands or they simply can’t see the blood on their hands because they are hysterically blinded by emotion and political beliefs.

Compassion expressed this way kills children and others as well.

How can you be so callus? Have you no shame?

Have you no common sense?

A gun free zone is big flashing invitation to all mentally unstable individuals and you should avoid them and keep you children out of them at all costs.

I admit that I don’t like to have teachers carrying guns but I would rather have that than more dead children, but then I really do care about their safety.
