Letter to the Editor: “Reasonable” is the key word in gun control

Posted

Someone using the NRA lies about a “far-left gun grab,” shows no credibility on the students and gun safety issue. The Supreme Court has guaranteed that law abiding citizens may possess guns for their personal safety, but did not say that reasonable gun safety laws are unconstitutional. The NRA has used the lie that guns can be confiscated from law abiding citizens for years to convince some people that it is the intent of anyone suggesting reasonable gun safety laws. Comparing student deaths from assault weapons with those from driver distractions is ridiculous.

Gun safety advocates are not “playing games with the Second Amendment” that is Constitutional law, but want to outlaw bump stocks and have universal background checks to keep deadly weapons from those who should not have them. It is not all adults that students are angry with, but the NRA and their supporters, especially elected officials bought and paid for by the NRA.
