Gun regulation

Letter to the editor 2

 

 “Follow the money.” That is good advice for many topics, including gun regulation.

When someone steals your guns and you buy replacements, who benefits financially from that theft?

When rival gangs have a shoot-out — killing innocent by-standers — and then they replace the weapons they just threw in the river, who benefits from the slaughter?

When guns are easily purchased by felons and the mentally ill, who prospers?

When the massacre of twenty first graders results in thousands of people rushing out to buy assault weapons, who benefits?

Decades ago the NRA’s priority was hunter safety. Has it now changed to guaranteeing profits for themselves and the manufacturers and dealers of guns and ammunition?

Will these babies’ only legacy be those profits? Or, this time, will Congress take significant action? If not now, when?
