In reference to a letter by Noralee Gray of Polo [“More gun laws? No – enforce existing statutes,” Oct. 25], she says no new laws are needed, enforce the ones we have. She may be right. We need to close in holes in the ones we have.
How can someone buy 33 guns in 4 months and thousands of rounds of ammunition without anyone wondering why?
She also refers to the shootings in Chicago – many of which are done by criminal elements.
The following were done by legally purchasing firearms by the person who purchased them or family members: Columbine High School, Virginia Tech, 13 killed, 17 wounded, Sandy Hook Elementary School, 20 children and six administrators killed, San Bernardino, California, 16 killed, 24 wounded, Orlando night club, 49 killed, 58 wounded, Oct. 1 in Las Vegas, 58 killed, 489 wounded or injured by Stephen Paddock, who had 37 guns and no one wondered why or asked questions when he made the purchases.
Something is wrong with the system. It is harder to get a credit card than a gun.
Rep. Kinzinger and members of Congress, how many more people have to die or be injured before you take action?
Every time there is a shooting, we are told now is not the time, and nothing gets done.
