Letter To The Editor: Guns Are A Tool, Not The Cause

Los Alamos
Once again Khalil J. Spencer (letter), has illumined the basic problem in our debate(?) about guns in our society.
Not only are the two widely separated sides talking past each other, they both ignore the roots of the situation we have found ourself in: Our self perpetuating culture of violence is at the base and where we find ourselves today.
Guns are a tool, not the cause. We have become a more angry society. Our answer to any situation is confrontation, not compromise.
