* I realize that you people are gun control nuts. That doesn't bother me. The world is full of stupid people. What bothers me is you print these ridiculous letters with information in them that is passed off as facts and then never print a response to them.
On Nov. 7, Mary Leigh Blek essentially says that you have a higher chance of dying from a gunshot if there is a gun in the house. Does the woman have any idea what she is saying? It's pretty hard to kill yourself, or anyone else, with a gun if you don't have one. I suppose you could go next door and borrow your neighbor's.
The fact is gun deaths and crime go down when states pass right-to-carry laws which are, if anything, the opposite of gun control.
I suggest that Blek do a little research on Australia where they have taken guns away from the people and crime and gun deaths have gone out of sight. Then The Times can let Blek write a letter that explains that situation to me.
