Solving gun problems

File art

In response to Shelly Roberts Bendall’s Sept. 7 column, we do not need to spend billions to study gun problems. The data is already there.

Gun problems are committed by three groups: crazies, stupids and criminals.

There are already many laws prohibiting criminals from having firearms. Enforcing these laws is lacking — that is the problem.

That problem can be solved by prosecution and enforcement. No medical research needed. The data is already there. This is not a disease.

Now that leaves the stupids and crazies. Perhaps Bendall has a remedy for that. I have heard you cannot cure stupid. How can you adjudicate crazy?
