Letters: We, not gun laws, can stop violence

Posted: September 26, 2013

AS WE all know, criminals who use firearms to intimidate, injure, and kill their victims must be held accountable for their actions, as they are truly the terrorists who live among us. We propose tougher gun laws with the hope that they will be the ultimate solution to our problem.

Haven't we recognized that more laws upon more laws will not make us safe? The terrorists who live among us don't care about society and the laws that their politicians pass.

Maybe the creation of jobs at a living wage might help. Teaching your children respect for their peers, adults, and authority would be a plus. Caring about your children's education and becoming involved at their school would set a good example. Monitoring their whereabouts and their friends might be a priority. Speak respectfully, make an effort to eliminate the use of profanity in front of your children.

Make your neighborhood safe by cooperating and communicating with authorities. If you see something wrong, say something.

Have faith, believe that we can change things for the better. Stop making excuses and blaming society for everything that is negative in your life. When good is produced, take credit; hold accountable those who drag all down.

All the gun bans/laws will not protect us from ourselves; restricting the rights of good people will not keep us safe or free. We must come down hard on the gun terrorists and stay down hard. M.Cleary
