Letter: Florida school shooting


The Florida school shooting, for your consideration ... the “shooter” involved could not legally buy a six pack of beer but he could legally buy a military assault rifle and a thousand rounds of ammunition, and literally do anything he wants with it without supervision or oversight.

What kind of dysfunction and denial are we living in? To add to the hypocrisy and denial the President’s response is that it’s a mental health issue? One of Trump’s first actions in the White House was to quash former President Obama’s recommendation for a new regulation that would prevent people with severe mental health illnesses from purchasing guns.

I urge all to vote your conscience, vote your heart and stop being held hostage by an out of control minority gun lobby.
