School board should keep eye on the ball

-A A +A

I read, with concern, the article in Sunday’s Los Alamos Monitor, titled “School board to consider gun resolution.” Mr. Langenbrunner tried to convince the board to endorse his view on gun control, citing health and safety of our children as the motivation. He gave interesting, and questionable, statistics related to our children and firearm injury, with emphasis on suicide.
From there he went way off in the weeds with a suggestion that the board voice support for background checks for gun purchases and a ban on semi-automatic firearms. Wow, what logic! Background checks are already done on the vast majority of gun sales. Besides that, Mr. Langenbrunner had already stated that the guns he’s worried about come from the home, not purchases by our youth. Firearms in the home should be stored safely, not unlike the keys to the family automobile. Additional background checks will not change the availability of firearms to our youth. As far as banning semi-automatic firearms, that represents most modern firearms and has nothing to do with their danger. Revolvers or bolt-action rifles present the same danger.
