Guns not the real reason for violence

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionFrank Giordano from Schenectady writes, “U.S. gun proponents tend to view gun ownership as a right.” Where could that idea possibly have come from?Maybe since it’s from the Second Amendment of the Constitution, in the Bill of Rights, where it states, “… the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”Since it’s in the Bill of Rights, clearly stated as a right, could that be why its considered a right? Want to look at the definition of the word infringe — act so as to limit or undermine.The gun is a symptom; it’s not the problem. Please don’t tell me that mass murder at its core isn’t an act of someone with mental health issues. Look at how society has changed in 30 years and even less — the overmedicating of children, no discipline at home, no discipline allowed in schools, graphic and violent video games, kids lacking respect for authority be it parents, school or law, and being told if it feels good do it. They can even pick if they want to identify as a boy or a girl. Some don’t even know what bathroom to use. With all this junk going on in schools, to single out the gun and call this a gun control issue is irresponsible. The gun is a tool. It’s a symptom but it’s not the issue.Pat WalshGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more
