To the Editor:
I wrote letters to my legislators asking them to prioritize working on gun safety. There is no need for weapons of mass destruction to be held by individuals. We do not allow the general public to have stinger missiles or thermo nuclear weapons. I am from a family of those who hunt for food. It seems a deer rifle would be plenty of protection if someone feels a threat and needs to defend their family.
I do not see Newaygo County as any different than small town USA anywhere. I recently went back as a volunteer in our local school. I hate thinking about someone being able to shoot up our children due to our very inadequate gun safety regulations.
I requested that they please work across the aisles for gun safety; come together for people's rights to live without the fear of being shot down in a public space. Plenty of other developed countries have done this. Our mass murder statistics for a developed country are horrifying.
