Letter to the Editor: Lock up the guns

America is sick. It is addicted to violence. Parents are irresponsible when they do not lock up guns.

I want a law that requires gun safes or vaults with combination locks. Verification can be done by a local sheriff, or license is revoked/denied. Let the merchants of murder step up and sell safes for profit, not military weapons to kill children.

Israel had no hijacked planes after they secured cockpits decades ago. We do not have enough prisons to lock up sick America. Lock up the guns.
