Letter: An end to this madness

To the Editor:

What a shame that 20 little ones – mostly 6- and 7-year-olds – with seven adults in Newtown, Conn., had to lose their lives so that a few macho men could have guns to play cops and robbers and play soldier, sneaking up on some harmless animal. 

These guns are the same guns that macho men use to commit hideous crimes, such as the one in Newtown. 

These guns are the guns that children find from hiding places in their homes to accidentally kill their friends. These are the same guns that young and old alike use in taking their own lives.

The United States is known throughout the world as having one gun for almost every man, woman and child in the country, which has a population of about 315 million.

Can you imagine what the world would think if we were to put one or two policemen with loaded guns at every school in the U.S. as the macho men at the National Rifle Association advocate? These macho men don’t care how many people are killed or what others think as long as they have their guns.

We must have legislation to put an end to this madness!
