To the editor: I used to be shocked and deeply saddened to learn in regards to the mass shooting in Sacramento. At a time when our leaders are so centered on the battle in Ukraine, we have to take note of the continuing and ever-worsening civil battle on our streets that’s destroying our nation.

As an alternative of sending lots of of thousands and thousands of {dollars} and weapons to struggle the Russians in Ukraine (probably scary World Battle III), we have to dedicate our cash and vitality towards better-funding and dealing with our police to confiscate the numerous unlawful weapons that stream freely in our communities. We additionally have to stiffen penalties for individuals who possess unlawful weapons.

I want to specific my deepest condolences to the victims and their households. This horrific violence leading to mass casualties is totally unacceptable.

The offenders within the current Sacramento mass taking pictures couldn’t have cared much less whether or not they obtained their weapons legally or not. Simply as there’s a black marketplace for medication, there’ll all the time be a black marketplace for weapons.

Consequently, essentially the most direct method for diminishing the extreme variety of shootings that happen is to take away the individuals from the streets who shoot the weapons.
