Background checks and permits for all gun owners

Editor, Index-Tribune:

 

I am writing this letter on behalf of my grandson, Hunter Pedersen. Hunter was a beautiful, 10-year-old little boy whose life was cut short from a lack of gun safety.

I know there are many more families dealing with the pain of losing their children to senseless tragedies involving guns. Yes, the NRA and their lobbying arm, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA), will tell us that guns don’t kill people, people do. That is true, but this is also true: untrained or mentally unstable people with guns kill people. When is enough, enough?

It’s time for all mothers, fathers and grandparents to get involved. Sadly, I didn’t get involved before this happened to our family, but my greatest hope now is that it doesn’t happen to yours.
