Once again, we read another Leonard Pitts diatribe in his Dec. 23 column, Confronting America’s love for guns .
Is he or anyone in the media capable of independent thought?
He even brought up the Columbine High School massacre as an example of “too many people having guns” even though it occurred during the previous assault-gun ban.
Criminals will get guns to commit crimes no matter how many guns you take from responsible, law-abiding citizens. Adam Lanza stole the weapons he used illegally by killing the owner, his mother.
There are two victims in crimes like Newtown. One, the people murdered by a lunatic and, second, the law-abiding citizens who are to be disarmed to make it easier for the next lunatic.
