The Odessa Record -

Letter to the Editor: Response to previous writer on gun control

 


To the Editor:

In response to Patricia Bates letter regarding the U.S. gun culture: She states that congress can stop the violence simply by the laws they can pass, yet we already have laws prohibiting murder and assault. What further laws is she referring to? Does she think outlawing guns will solve the problem? Gun ownership is prohibited or restricted in England and France. Did it prevent shootings there?

She has mistakenly stated facts about the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. This bill, HR38, can be read in its short entirety on the website Congress.gov. It would allow concealed carry permit holders to carry their weapons in other states that also permit it or do not prohibit it. Carrying weapons would not be permitted in areas that the state or federal government designate, such as schools, courthouses, bars and airports.

Disarming the American public only leaves them defenseless.
