To the editor: Did I miss an election to have this National Rifle Association make decisions for us? They send out a 225-page report urging states to loosen weapon restrictions and calling for armed police officers, security guards or staff members in every U.S. school, and urging states to loosen gun restrictions and let trained teachers and administrators carry weapons.
So, we are going to have to arm anyone working at shopping malls - projectionists at movie theaters, etc.? This is their answer to the killings?
First of all, are they going to be paying for all of this? It’s totally amazing that our Congressional members have been avoiding this most serious issue. I would like to hear what Congressman Bob Latta has to say about this one.
Where is our governor? Our teachers are educators – they should not have to be taking shooting classes. The NRA is using this to alarm people.
We now have a rifle club telling us to use our classrooms as shooting ranges. The first thing that popped into my mind after reading this article is who will profit from flooding our nation with more weapons? It won't be you or me making the money, and it won't be the schools, either.
The NRA should remove itself from telling us what we need to do. We have a task force that is looking at this. The NRA was not elected by the people and will not make any decisions regarding our children’s lives.
High-power weapons are killing our children and adults too, and we will start with getting those guns out of the hands of the public.
