Letter: Military-style weapons have to be outlawed now

Military-style weapons have to be outlawed now

President Trump has lost his last nugget of sanity by suggesting that teachers should be armed. Teachers have more than enough responsibility. It may well be plausible to have one or two well-placed armed and armored professionals. Even then, what would stop a determined shooter from waiting in the parking lot and attacking as students exit school?

Background checks and age limits don’t work, either. An underage teen will borrow or steal a weapon from an elder.

Schools are not the problem. Guns are the problem and guns will always be the problem. Period.

These military-style weapons have no place in the home. They must be outlawed once and for all.
