I trust I’m not alone in believing there are no inferior humans

To The Daily Sun,

I write in response to Ryan J. Murdough's letter of November 20. I am surprised that I haven't seen anyone else responding to his letter. Perhaps I have just missed the response.

I am opposed to the idea that whites in our society have rights that others do not. We are all human beings, and human rights pertain to all. There is no room for dividing society into the superior and inferior, the entitled and the dismissed.

I trust that I am not alone in this belief.

We must act to reduce the likelihood of mass murders

To The Daily Sun,

Being a veteran, ex-police officer and proud gun owner with a concealed carry permit I am also an unabashed advocate for common sense firearm background checks.

Americans have suffered through far too many mass murders where a perpetrator was able to purchase firearms, taking advantage of background check loopholes. These days, people with a history of violence can easily acquire guns after waiting three days, going to gun shows, or purchasing them online and that is unacceptable.

We live in the only country in the entire world with such a catastrophically high rate of gun deaths. I refuse to believe that the country I fought for is inherently more violent and dangerous than any other.

No gun owner has anything to fear from background checks. If you are responsible with your firearms and are a law-abiding citizen, like me, no one will infringe on your Second Amendment rights.

But, no right, not even the right to free speech, can go completely unregulated. It is far past time that our legislators act to strengthen background checks and require them for all gun purchases.

We have a responsibility to do what we can to stop these shootings and if a background check stops even one would-be murderer, it will be worth it.
