Gun Perspectives

Letter to the Editors

"What Comes After the Grief?" (by Jim Wallis, February 2013) was a nice editorial, but not specific enough. The federal government can help—it will keep some semi-automatic and automatic weapons out of the marketplace—and the press about this will help a lot. There are so many elements of this issue—guns or no guns in our hands, mental health, democracy, and gun owners deeply concerned their rights are being taken away, etc. I think you should have recognized both sides. I am with you all the way, but it's not black and white, unfortunately.
