I read a report that in politician-like style a solver of problems has rushed to the scene of a crime in order to visibly provide solutions to gun violence ("Let's find solutions to gin violence," Sept. 25). “Eighty-two percent of Utahns support background checks,” said Miriam Walkingshaw, and we “don’t hear from conservatives, moderates and religious leaders who support gun violence prevention.”
Once again, a study is presented where we are left with indefinite details and half-truths, and then the implication is made that there are those who are against prevention of gun violence. If we are to make a difference in a problem, it is better to leave the sophistry and nonsense aside and focus on real solutions that will disarm (pun intended) not only the perpetrators but also the scheming despots who plan to gut the Second Amendment and whatever else fits their plans for control.
Why is it not mentioned that almost to an incident every one of these mass shooters is on psychotropic drugs, that background checks deny purchases already (even in the case at hand), that important facts in all these incidents never reach major media outlets, instead leaving misleading reports to structure opinion?
