Military-style weapons are problem

A note to the National Rifle Association:

Regarding your belief that the best protection from a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun, I am certain that in the case of the Las Vegas massacre, if every person in the audience was well armed, the result would have been no different.

Scheming, malicious killers will no doubt always plan to have the drop on their victims. And a large proportion of the killers usually plan to die anyway.

You say that it is people, not guns, that kill people. But it is the gun that is the tool that allows for the massacre. It is the military-style weapon that is the primary problem.

-- Richard Skultin, Corvallis
