To the editor:

Welcome to Dodge City reincarnated, although Indianapolis is not alone in the epidemic of gun violence. The reactions are predictable. Politicians posture that we need tougher penalties and enforcement (with a token increase in budget).

Most of the rest of us keep wringing our hands and pray for some sort of miracle.
