Letters To The Editor

Get rid of your weapons; do some good

To the person(s) responsible for shooting out one of the windows in my vehicle recently:

I am highly thankful you didn’t fire your weapon at a time when my four-year-old was in the truck, as I’m sure you are highly thankful that you weren’t caught (at least not this time).

It would benefit yourselves and others if you take a moment or three to consider the grim potential of your malicious mischief.

If you need target practice, then go find a shooting range. If you need to release anger and resentment, then discuss it with a therapist. If you’re so pathetically bored with your lives that you have to shoot at parked cars, then I suggest you attend school and study sociology.

Better yet, sell your firearm and get a job working with paraplegics who were unfortunate enough to be in their vehicles when cretins like you fired your weapon. Shaun Kelly Spokane
