<b>America without guns</b>

EDITOR: How can we stay silent and helpless in the face of all this gun violence — children being slaughtered in their neighborhood fields, tiny first graders slaughtered in their classroom, teachers gunned down at work, innocent teens and babies hit by bullets in their neighborhoods, workers dying in the workplace, families dying in the dark at the movies, travelers running from a gunman at the airport? I am horrified by it all. Imagine what this country would look like without assault rifles or handguns. That is my heartfelt vision: America without guns.
