To the editor:
Guns don’t save lives.
A man kills the Colorado prison chief. Didn’t that killer realize that this man certainly would have a gun for self-defense? That didn’t stop him.
When John F. Kennedy was assassinated or when his brother Bobby was killed, certainly there were guns in the entourage with them. I am sure Martin Luther King would not have been saved if he had a gun in his hand. The gunman at Newtown did not execute his rampage because he thought there were no guns in the school.
Guns for self-defense don’t work well. Murder is murder in offense or defense. “An eye for an eye leaves both blind.”
