Tougher gun control unlikely in today’s political climate

Written by  Staff Writer

To the editor,
It was a sad day on Feb. 14, when a young man from Florida allegedly shot and killed 17 students. There were so many warning signs that Nikolas Cruz was a troubled young man, but they went ignored. Cruz was expelled from high school and had many personal and social problems.

A good friend of the shooter sent a tip to the FBI saying that Cruz had purchased a weapon and bragged about planning a mass shooting. These clues were ignored by the FBI. Perhaps they were too busy looking at Hillary Clinton’s emails and the possible collusion of President Trump with the Russians?

Will the politicians act on gun control? Probably not. Until our incumbent politicians start losing elections, no bipartisan gun controls will be passed.

Congress must pass reasonable gun laws to prevent mass shootings from happening again. John Q. Public should not be able to purchase military assault-style weapons (AR-15, AK-47), as often these are the weapons of choice in the past mass shootings.
