To the Advertiser-Gleam:
Gun violence is a constant in our country! It is a moral and personal responsibility for each one of us to try to make a difference. How many of us have called our lawmakers and voiced our opinion on the need for gun legislation? Is Pro-life intended for protection only within the mother’s womb? What about the right to life of a child or adult of any age? We the people have the “right” for security from high-risk gun violence? Our country should be ashamed and embarrassed by the level of gun deaths in which the outside world bear’s witness. Eugene Stoner designed the original AR-15 for the military. Since his death and patents have expired, the NRA calls it “America’s rifle.” Stoner’s family argues the weapon is a tool of war-never intended for civilians.
