Letter to the editor | Heading down dark road

June 4, 2014 

America can eventually destroy itself with the growing gun problem. The country has become numbed toward senseless shootings that occur so frequently. The need for powerful lobbyists and gun dealers to make money supersedes the need to bring sanity to a country drowning in greed. As a result of greed over common sense, a form of denial in my country is setting in.

We as a nation are dangerously heading down a dark road where being safe will become a thing of the past. For those of us that can see that too many guns are leading the U.S. down a path of premature destruction, the coming 2014 ballot box should show a great unified effort to reverse the downward path.

This would be in a real, true sense a democracy rectifying itself.
