Letter: U.S. government cannot make laws to cure evil




To the editor:

I enjoy reading the Journal and getting the scoops on my friends and neighbors. I really enjoy the “Views” section, especially the Jeff Stahler political cartoons.

I do not know if the drawing on April 14 (regarding the National Rifle Association and a mass stabbing at a high school) was supposed to be funny or serious, but it shows one thing. You cannot regulate evil. All humans have a good side and a bad side in their life. People can do a bad thing and be sorry, but evil can never be cured.

I am a retired fireman and EMT. I have seen bad and evil, and there is no comparison. People like President Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and Michael Bloomberg make speeches about gun control. They live in gated communities with security systems. Do they really care about our safety, or do they just want their name in front of the public for political purposes?
