Letter of the Day: Gun money

Gun money

EDITOR: Amazing. The National Rifle Association's latest idea for preventing gun violence is to arm teachers.

If, as in most other civilized nations, we had gun control, guns wouldn't be a severe problem now. But thanks to the NRA and arms manufacturers, the proliferation of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines is so pervasive that even if we could pass some form of gun control it would be like trying to put the genie back in the bottle.

It is obvious that before we can achieve any meaningful weapons control we have to first control the lobbyists who are buying our legislators.
