Recent anti-gun letters
Re: the recent letter headlined “Gun-related violence” (Dec. 24).
I am an NRA member, so the question was directed to me. Here are two suggestions.
Mass shootings in this country date from the 1970s. What else happened in the 1970s? We closed the insane asylums and turned the inmates loose on society. Those who are mentally deficient, but sane, are not a threat to society and should be allowed to go about their lives. However, those who are not sane, e.g. sociopaths, do not abide by the rules (norms and mores) of society and should be returned to the asylums. Let us be honest, those recent shooters who were not shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they shot their victims were all previously identified as sociopaths.
