Oh, let the spin begin! The pathetically predictable murder apologists are sending their letters and pointing their fingers.
Andrew Kenny’s “proposal” that more guns make us safer is patently absurd (“Communication is key,” letters, Oct. 4). If that were true, this would be the safest country in the world. “Only good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns” is a bumper sticker, not a policy.
But before suggesting armed, undercover cops in the classroom, Mr. Kenny managed to blame the killers’ parents! Not. Helpful.
There are too many guns, and they are too easy to get. It’s that simple. In the USA, anyone can acquire guns of any kind anywhere at any time. This is what gun fetishists call their “Second Amendment right,” and it facilitates murder.

All guns must be registered, all gun owners must pass competency tests and background checks, and some people should simply be forbidden near firearms just as some people are forbidden to drive.
I await the murder apologists’ frothy-mouthed rebuttals.
