Make your voice heard on guns (Matthew Albright)
The point of this column seems to be that some people blame school shootings on the availability of guns while others are more concerned about gun rights under the 2nd Amendment. The News Journal has been getting more letters on this subject than any other in the past year, and therefore why don't the people who are concerned about the issue reach out to their legislators rather than letting it die (as usually happens when memories of a mass shooting fade from the public consciousness). Student demonstrations are great, but they won't be enough. "Lawmakers work for you. You and your fellow voters hired them - and, if you don't like the way they vote, you can fire them."
Public pressure is great, but the people who apply it don't necessarily know anything. Shouldn't we be looking for reasoned logical solutions, not just emotional reactions?
