To the editor:

I have a couple of questions for all those folks clamoring for the government to “do something” (ie: stricter gun control measures) in response to the most recent mass shooting incidents.

1) Are you in favor of the mandatory death penalty for the convicted mass murders? If your answer is “No” then apparently it’s not about holding the person (killer) responsible for their actions – it’s just about the guns – because it’s easier to regulate an inanimate object than to acknowledge the evil that exists in our society and dealing with it.

2) Have any of you well-meaning folks looked at the existing federal or state laws and examined the level of enforcement (or lack thereof) of them? You would be shocked if you actually did.

Worshiping guns is NOT the answer either...especially weapons of war.
