When guns don't help


Letters to the Editor

John R. Junger III
Please let me weigh in on the debate about the proper use of firearms in our society. Robert Morris’ assertion (Letters, “Guns and freedom,” Aug. 15, Oklahoma Gazette) that retired Lt. Colonel Richard Westmoreland (”How many children must die,” July 25) has not seriously considered the meaning of that oath is a little disrespectful.

Responsible gun control


Letters to the Editor

Jackie Gaston
Increasing access to guns as the solution of gun violence makes as much sense as doubling up on doughnuts to lose weight. Not gonna happen. Why not try responsible gun control including a bipartisan deal with state and local governments to buy back semiautomatic weapons? That’s what Australia did in 1996 after a gunman killed 35 tourists and wounded 23 more. Their buyback covered about one-fifth of all firearms in Australia, including more than 600,000 semiautomatic shotguns and rifles.
