Letter: Address the real causes of gun violence
Re: ‘Guns in our cities’ investigative series (Metro, week of Sept. 23)
Let’s talk about some things that are often left out of the public safety conversation. Who are the killers? Young males who believe that violence is a good way to solve problems and the mentally impaired. How can we improve public safety? First, let’s enforce and improve our laws and systems to keep guns out of the hands of young men and the mentally impaired.
Second, let’s stop the prescription of drugs that are known to have effects like suicide and violent behavior and are involved in most of our mass murders.
Third, let’s stop glorifying violence and educate our children about the horrible physical and emotional effects of its use.
