To the editor:
We need gun control and vigilance of parents, priests, teachers and coaches, and no bullying in schools or on the Internet. No guns should be allowed on any campus, grade school through college, regardless of the NRA and no guns in movie theaters, churches or stores either.
Control drive-by shootings and bomb threats. If guns are sold, background checks should be made. We have a responsibility for keeping guns locked up so children and mentally unstable people cannot kill themselves or others. Bishops should report priests with abusive behavior and NOT pass them on to other parishes. Children should not be sexually abused. Parents have this responsibility too, of keeping their children from being sexually abused.
Stiffer penalties should be in place for people who violate gun rules like background checks and parents who keep unlocked gun cabinets so children can come to school and show off these guns. It’s illegal to serve drinks to underage people and not wear a seat belt, yet we lack gun or weapon laws. We have childproof caps on medicine as well.
The NRA and Lanza estate should pay for the funerals of the victims of Sandy Hook. They owe it to them for the carnage they created. All the flags are at half-staff because we are in mourning with them. Our prayers are with them and for them and their families.
