I agree with Gabe Kahn’s “Tragedy strikes near, and far” (Aug. 8) about gun violence. Some time ago I wrote a letter to the editor in the Trenton Times and posted my comments on Facebook and also got backlash.
I approached the subject from the angle that shooting guns is fun but we need to get rid of the assault rifles and I pointed out what I considered common sense reasoning in dealing with this issue, but it didn’t matter what I wrote. I had hoped this approach might get through to people but it didn’t. People see red no matter what you say and how you say it.
