Letter: Automatic weapons have no place in society

To the Editor:

In response to Peter Gerlach’s letter on Aug. 31, we need common sense. Weaponry lessons won’t change the fact that automatic weapons have no place in our society. We need sound reasoning to prevail, not some gun collectors’ hobbies.

I appreciate your knowledge of automatic weapons, but you didn’t tell me why anyone should own one. There are too many people out there that put their right to own one above the safety and well-being of everyone else.

As long as we have politicians willing to line their pockets we’re never going to rid ourselves of this problem. Greed seems to overwhelm common sense.
