Letter: Criminals and terrorists prefer unarmed citizenry

Criminals and terrorists prefer unarmed citizenry

Once again, after a mass shooting incident, we are hearing the benefits of stricter gun control. Don’t people realize that stricter gun control laws benefit the criminals and terrorists? Gun control laws only pertain to the law-abiding citizens. The criminals and terrorists don’t follow the law. If they want to get weapons, they can get them.

Knowing that their victims will be unarmed benefits these people. If the people in the conference room in the latest incident were carrying weapons, there would have been fewer casualties. Let average law-abiding citizens carry a weapon to protect themselves at home and at work. They just might save your life someday.
