I am writing in response to Mrs. Boyd’s editorial last week calling for stricter gun laws. First I’d like to point out that, yes in fact guns do not kill people, neither do knives, baseball bats or any other product a person may find to commit acts of harm.
In 2005, 52 people were killed in the London subway bombings; in 2002 Dr. Harold Shipman killed 172 of his patients. Timmy McVeigh killed 168 innocent people, (19 children under the age of 6, and injured 680 people). You can still buy fertilizer, racing fuel and rent box trucks.
