Do they already do this? To some extent, yes.

However, my concern is teachers are always the ones asked to do more, but there is never any mention of the parents’ role. And what about churches, coaches and other positive adult influences? What we are asking of teachers is unrealistic and unfair.

Let teachers teach and do their job. Fund them so they can do that well. And parents? Step up to the plate and do your job, too.

Assault weapons

EDITOR: I am writing in response to Ray Schuster’s letter in Wednesday’s paper (“Thompson and AR-15s”) about my Town Hall on gun violence prevention. I am glad he was there and pleased 300 people attended and voiced their concerns on this important issue.

When asked about assault weapons, I was very clear about my personal opinion. I carried an assault weapon in combat in Vietnam, I know what they were designed for, and I don’t believe they should be on our streets.

Thank you again for your participation and know that I will continue fighting to pass legislation that will keep our community and our nation safer from gun violence.

Total insanity

EDITOR: The mental health problem that really needs addressing is the collective mindset that defends, or at least tolerates, the easy availability of mass-murder weapons. Total insanity.
