Minneapolis shooting underscores need for more gun control
The Kansas City Star
The mass killings at a sign-making business in Minneapolis underscore the need for more gun controls in the United States.
The gunman on Thursday fatally shot Reuven Rahamim, the 61-year-old owner of Accent Signage Systems Inc., and three others before turning the gun on himself. He also wounded at least four persons.
Prayers and cries deploring the gun violence have surfaced again. But these kinds of shootings happen far too often in this country. Prayers, sympathy and remorse aren’t enough anymore.
The bigger concern is getting people to voluntarily give up guns. Then intense moments of passion and anger won’t result in senseless killings.
