How many will it take?

To the Editor: I ask our legislators to work hard to pass sensible gun legislation: a three-day waiting period to give a cooling-off period for someone who is suicidal or angry, prohibit the large capacity magazines that I see no need for, require background checks that could find the person with a restraining order or violent or suicidal history, cooperate with other states and databases to avoid missing the signs of trouble.

I ask that they override the governor’s recent vetoes on the three bills addressing these needed changes, or work on compromises that they can approve of, but please don’t accept the governor’s stated opinion that safer gun legislation is not needed in this state.

How many gun deaths does it take in communities which hoped it could never happen here before we make sensible changes to the laws?
