Letter to the Editor: Reduce number of guns owned by citizens
The Rachel Marsden column in the Jan. 2 edition of the Northern Virginia Daily was excellent. Her last comment regarding hypothetical folks with guns all cutting loose was really right on.
Another thing to consider about having armed teachers or guards in schools: what if one of them snaps and goes off the deep end? A lot of kids would die before anyone could intercede.
The only viable solution that I can see is to reduce the number of guns in private hands. It only takes one rifle or shotgun to kill a deer. There may be some who hunt with a handgun, but I would hazard a guess that they are very good shots and have spent considerable time in the woods.
