An email to a journalist...

First, here's a link to her story
I wrote to her to ask about blaming guns instead of the criminals.


I've yet to hear back from her after this last one. I'll post an update as soon as she replies.


Here are the Emails... read from the bottom up:


What about the fact that making a ban on anything doesn't seem to keep it out of the hands of criminals anyway? Also, what about the fact that criminals don't usually spend even as much as half of their sentence behind bars? Just like the three dirtbags that killed that cop in Philly....all three of them should still be in jail from previous convictions but were let out WAY early for some reason? My point is that we should be keeping the bad guys in jail. We should be letting the good guys protect themselves from the bad guys.

Dan,
We do blame the person. We charge and convict, and put them in jail. But
research shows that guns do most of the killing in this country, and
semi-automatic weapons inflict the most damage.
If you don't believe me, check with any law enforcement agency. They
keep numbers for it.
Best,
Annette

Annette,

You do realize, don't you, that someone has to pull the trigger on any
gun that gets fired? Why don't we, I know it's a novel idea, blame the
person doing the killing....not the instrument they used. I'm curious
what you think about that.
