Letter: When did our country become so uncivilized?

When did our country become so uncivilized?

I am so disappointed that three candidates for president have suggested that there would be fewer victims of shootings if they were armed themselves. I think if you start encouraging citizens to be armed in every situation – work, school, church – it could only end up with more loss of life.

Be that as it may, the bigger question is: When did we become so uncivilized that we must have a gun with us at all times? What nation in the whole world has this problem? None. Why are Americans so violent and angry? Until attitudes change, all the gun control in the world won’t help.
