Time to cut down gun violence
This Letter to the Editor appeared in the The Deseret News October 16, 2017
It’s time to demand that all stakeholders do their part to decrease death and injury from gun violence. Let’s set a goal of cutting the number of gun deaths in half by 2030. Then let’s demand that everyone take action: legislators, gun lobbyists, gun store owners, gun owners and non-owners. If you’re not part of the solution, then you’re part of the problem. If the number of gun deaths is not going down, then we’re not doing enough.
