Letter: Faulty thinking in gun debate

Posted4/15/2023 1:00 AM

When did the U.S. declare open season on children in their classrooms? This must stop.

For the GOP and Mr. McCarthy to continue to say it's a mental health problem and not a gun problem, they are right. When a shooter takes the lives of children and the adults who care for them with assault weapons, the person clearly has a mental health problem.


On the other hand, don't we also have a mental health problem when our elected leaders refuse to accept there's a gun problem and refuse to ban assault weapons and not even try to stop this madness?
