Letter: The land of gun violence

To the Editor:

This month, more people were killed and injured at a theater in Florida and a school in New Mexico. Almost every week someone is killed by weapons legally carried into malls, theaters and other places.

The Second Amendment right to bear arms is apparently more important to fanatics than the safety of innocent Americans. Assault rifles and semi-automatic pistols with high-capacity magazines are everywhere.

So, next time you see someone that looks a little weird or is in a rage over losing his job, you better run because he probably has a gun and might shoot you. And, of course, the NRA wants you to have a gun in order to “defend” yourself from someone who should have had a background check (and might have failed). 

You can blast each other and increase the chances of killing or wounding bystanders in a big shootout.

America, the land of gun violence.
