The real tragedy in three gun crimes
By Gary Ambridge
Bel Air, Md.
What do these three stories in the Sept. 17 Metro section have in common? “2 killed in standoff at Baltimore hospital,” “Hostages detail standoff at Discovery building” and “Wife gets 8 years in D.C. killing.”
All stemmed from apparently unstable people having access to guns. The Post’s editors missed an excellent opportunity to focus on the real tragedy in these stories: Guns kill people when they are in the hands of unstable people.
Can we forget the tragedy of Virginia Tech? When will we as a society obtain the courage to stand up to the death industry and legislate real gun reform?
