Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Money Talks, on Guns Too

I am weary of the diatribe that follows every mass shooting about how sorry gun proponents, politicians, etc. feel about these massacres. They offer their prayers and compassion each and every time.

What about helping these people? What about the NRA having a fund for victims of gun violence? What about taxing ammunition in order to provide funds for these victims? If a person is hit by a car he or she could get compensation from the insurance. If a person is affected by a hurricane, FEMA , churches and other groups step in to help. I see no sincere concern for the victims of gun violence, only rhetoric, and the inability of gun advocates to take any responsibility for gun ownership.

If this is a right, then it also bears a responsibility. Perhaps if there were financial consequences, there would be more resolve to deal with the problem. Money talks.
