Speak Out: Taking up gun bills

Readers reacted to recent letter to the editor imploring Delaware legislators to take up Senate bills in January that are aimed at curbing gun violence.

• Not one of those unconstitutional bills would have prevented that shooting. — Lou Bialota

•Arm teachers. Problem solved. — Eric Fibelkorn

• One issue with that is that most teachers (from what I’ve heard and read) wouldn’t feel comfortable with a gun. — Willy Woods

• Then let those who do take the class, get certified for carry conceal. Again problem solved. — Willie Preacher

• Clearly you have never worked a day in a school. Teaching has become one of the most difficult professions out there and you want to arm teachers as a solution? Get a grip. — Ellen Behringer

• California pretty much has tried to pass all those bills and it did nothing to prevent it. — James Sack

• “Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually…”- George Mason, Virginia. Sound familiar, folks? — Matt Bucher

• The only people talking about confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens are the propagandists at the NRA and their minions in Congress who are paid to repeat this nonsense. If only there were a way to check how many laws have been introduced to make it legal to do what you’re suggesting, something you could use from the privacy of your own home or even hold in the palm of your hand. — Christopher Norbury
