Rick Jamison’s recent guest viewpoint of (“Passing more anti-gun laws will not make us safer,” April 10, 2018) was spot on. Knife violence shows that guns aren’t the problem as much as an overly permissive liberal society. Blaming anyone with differing opinions and lack of parenting is the problem.
It doesn’t take a village; it takes good parenting and respect for others, including respect for conservatives.
Socialism historically results in fewer freedoms, which must be limited for it to succeed. Remember the lie: “If you like your health-care plan, you can keep it”? That was just the tip of the iceberg. In order to install socialism, guns must be removed because the majority of citizens won’t stand for the government intrusion necessary to install it. After guns it will be freedom of speech.
