Re: Reader is anti-bandwagon


Guns are a fact of modern life. Mentally unstable people will get hold of them, and people with guns may become mentally unstable. I note that most mass shooters, whatever their mental state, have enough forethought not to shoot up police stations, gun shows or pistol ranges. They attack places where the law-abiding are not permitted weapons.

There is no such thing as a safe society, but we can be safer when we (a) take responsibility for our own safety and (b) are armed and ready to do so.

I suggest that The Jewish Voice get off the “gun control” bandwagon.
