Letter: Letter: Bob Bauer

To the editor:

Thank you for being on the right side of this issue (“Enough,” editorial, March 3). I know we are smack dab in the middle of a red state and sensible gun control measures won’t be popular with many of your readers.

As your headline states, “Enough” hits the nail on the head. Our right to bear arms does not mean we should have unlimited access to military style weapons. Bump stocks should be outlawed and background checks should be thorough without loopholes. These things should not be a source of controversy. Other countries don’t have a wild west approach to gun ownership and neither should we.

I urge all of the readers to clip the legislator contact list and start emailing your demands for change on this issue and others that are eroding our quality of life. Citizens need to stand up and force these do-nothing politicians to start acting on issues instead of just making noise to arouse their base.

Bob Bauer
