How disgusting it was to read of what those gun enthusiasts were doing to that poor 5-year-old girl. I couldn't believe how insensitive they were to the trauma that girl experienced over the shooting of her mother.
If those gun users want to do that girl a favor, they should make a bonfire of their instruments of mayhem, and tell her how sorry they were that guns were ever invented. At least they should be made to read your front-page story in the same edition on how frequent violence is having a traumatic impact on many Los Angeles County children ("When Learning to Walk Means Learning to Duck").
