The terrible tragedy of the double-fatal shootings in Concord is a community's nightmare and leaves so many issues unresolved. The gun was legally licensed and a permit was legally obtained. One victim had career aspirations in law enforcement and was a budding gunsmith. Family members even belong to the National Rifle Association.
Yet none of these safeguards protected these two young men. Grieving parents wonder how Charlton Heston and the NRA can support handgun ownership, and our world is saddened and diminished by such a senseless loss.
