Letter to the editor: No to more guns

To the editor:

I would like to respond to the half-baked suggestion of Vincent Muirhead in his March 6 letter to the Public Forum calling for more guns to stop school shootings, in accordance with National Rifle Association suggestions.

How about church shootings? I bet that had the church leaders in Charleston, S.C., and the Texas church’s recent carnage been properly armed and skilled in weaponry that those devoted churchgoers would still be alive today. I wonder if the NRA and Mr. Muirhead may have considered some other alternatives.
