Letter: Where are we headed?

To the Editor:

Years ago, there were bumper stickers that read, “when they outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns!” That’s scary.

Here is something that is frightening – if they eliminate guns from the general population, only the government will have guns. Mass shootings are an abomination, as are any shooting that kills someone. If guns are done away with, then maybe abortion tools also should be. Compare the numbers.

Where is our society headed? William Penn, founder of the province of Pennsylvania, once said, “A nation that refuses governance by God will surely by governed by a tyrant.”
