Letter to the Editor:

Responsible gun owners. It’s way past time for you to live up to your claim and be responsible.

We, as a country, have demonstrated that we are totally unable to manage our situation where anyone can own almost any kind of a gun without any constraints. The killing of innocent people continues. There are no safe places.

It is beyond time for responsible gun owners to take the lead and demand that the Second Amendment be repealed, and that all guns be confiscated. Then and only then, could we determine who is responsible enough to own or possess a gun. We fouled the sand box and it is time to clean up the mess. Responsible gun owners, live up to your claim. Or admit that the term “responsible gun owner” is an oxymoron.
