We need to use logic, not emotions, when responding to problems.
Well yeah, I can't disagree with that. The only thing is that it was the most illogical letter I've read in some time.
Some people want to ban all AR-15s because of this. Some want to ban all rifles. Some want to ban all guns.
What percentage of people want to ban all guns? .0003? So, that's pretty much a straw man.
Suppose a very troubled teen boy drove a big black Ford F-150 with a fast engine and big tires into a crowd of school kids on the sidewalk, killing some and injuring others. (Terrorists in Europe have done this.)
I'm going to call that a red herring leading into a second straw man.
Would the same critics want to ban scary Ford F-150s? How about all Ford trucks? Would they ban any truck with a powerful engine and big tires? How about banning all vehicles?
I'd dare say there wasn't a spot of logic in the whole letter. How do you get that F-150 into a school, church, movie theater, concert, etc. Unfortunately, his thesis was tested by a sociopath in Charlottesville with the killing of Heather Heyer.
When it becomes an issue of mass casualties due to homicide by auto then I believe we will discuss that. In the meantime, guns are the issue.
