Reader speaks out on gun violence

To the Editor:

It's time for responsible gun owners to take responsibility for what is going on in our country. Those of us who are not gun owners have done as much as we can, writing letters, joining gun control lobbying groups and who knows what else to no avail. The killing continues. Twenty-nine and maybe more victims in less than 12 hours. The National Gun Archive lists 253 mass shootings, (an incident where 4 or more victims are shot or killed) so far in the 216 days of 2019. If responsible gun owners do not step to the front and bring some effective action to stem the killing, others may take even more drastic action. We, as a country, are capable of repealing amendments to the Constitution as well as adding new amendments.

Do not be surprised if a movement to repeal the Second Amendment rises to power and you lose your right to possess a gun for any reason.

Jim Leschke
