"Paul Bucher, the district attorney for the Wisconsin county where a man opened fire in a church service last month, killing seven people and himself, has one answer to the deadly mass shootings around the country in recent weeks: more guns."

" 'The problems aren't the guns, it's the guns in the wrong hands,' said Bucher, a Republican who recently announced his candidacy for Wisconsin attorney general. 'We need to put more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Whether having that would have changed what happened is all speculation, but it would level the playing field. If the person you're fighting has a gun and all you have is your fists, you lose.' "

"A year ago, U.S. Sen. John Warner of Virginia joined a group of thoughtful Republican senators to contribute common-sense amendments to a bill that was on the verge of giving away the store to the gun lobby in trying, and almost succeeding, to put the industry above the law."

Apparently, to this "writer," actually holding CRIMINALS responsible for crimes, instead of legitimate businesspeople is somehow "radical."

In light of this news, the Bush Administration must focus on keeping U.S. citizens safe from internal threats."

UT: Gun laws don't protect (Letter)

FULL TEXT BELOW:

I agree with Clark Aposhian's comments (“Gun laws won't protect you from someone bent on violence,” March 26) regarding guns in schools. Criminals, by definition, have little regard for the law (including gun laws). Restricting the use of firearms by law-abiding citizens has no effect on the bad guys. Gun restrictions in schools, churches and places of employment only make us defenseless against violence, and they even advertise that vulnerability.

I often wonder how many lives could have been saved at Columbine or Red Lake if adults (including teachers) with good judgment and a bit of training could carry concealed firearms on campus.
