2017 Letters to the editor stock

Another mass murder/injuries because of gun violence happened, this time in Vegas. I don't get it. Does the Second Amendment mean assault rifles, allowing the mentally ill to carry or allowing silencers?

I really thought when all the children in Newtown were murdered, that would've been the beginning of sensible gun legislation.

Why are we paying our representatives in Congress to do absolutely nothing? They all should be ashamed. It's a disgrace that you have to worry about going out and possibly getting killed.

I don't know what it will take for the country to wake up and start acting civilized. This is the 21st century, not the Wild West. Wake up, people!
