Letter: Would removal of guns save lives in cases of mass shootings?

Letters

I am sick and tired of the same pattern repeating over and over. Some screwball sprays bullets into a crowd of people. Then President Obama comes on TV and issues the standard response: "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, who suffered in this horrible tragedy ... yada, yada, yada."

I'd much rather hear the president say: "Now listen up! Enough is enough. Starting tomorrow morning, the government will begin confiscating all firearms from every person in America. We must stop the killing now."

Yes, I know hunters will feel deprived of their favorite hobby, but that's a small inconvenience if it saves lives.

Just think about this: There are virtually no handgun murders in the country of Japan, because the people there are not allowed to own guns. It works!
