Letter to the editor: Safety plan

March 19, 2017

To the editor:

Make America safe.

How to do that? The President thinks that denying visas to citizens of six predominantly Muslim countries will help. But none of those countries has been implicated in any terrorist attack on the U.S.

America would be made safer if something could be done about gun violence in the country. In 2015 alone, more than 12.000 people were killed by guns. Twice that number were injured. We need to examine more closely gun legislation at both the federal and the state levels.
