To the Editor,

It sounds so awful to say, but I pray that people can begin to see and recognize evil.

A person is spoken of as insane because he kills so very many people using all kinds of guns. One day that person suddenly becomes insane for awhile. Treatments and a few years in a mental health place can fix that person up, right?

Trouble is, his victims are still dead and forgotten. Lives that could have made a good and positive difference in this world were ended in blood, pain and death. Do they deserve to be forgotten? Does he deserve pity, and a future spent how he wants it to be? At what number of victims does it count as murder or insanity? Who decides?

My thoughts do not support gun control. Americans have a right to own a gun. Evil people probably destroyed more lives while behind the steering wheel of a car or truck. They can be drunk, drugged, or just talking on their phone.

The problem is inside the heart of each person who chooses evil instead of good.
