Dear Editor:

Is anyone else getting tired of hearing police reports of no danger to the public every time someone is shot or killed in British Columbia?

It seems to me there is indeed an extreme danger to the public when people are running around with guns, and shooting them off. I think it is time we got serious about guns in our country, and made them illegal on our streets. How about a mandatory jail term for possession of a gun?

We do not have a National Rifle Association in Canada steadfastly insisting on the public right to bear arms and shoot other people. It is time we divorced ourselves from American insanity and insist that guns are not permitted in our society.

I suggest possession of a gun in a public place be rendered illegal.
