There ought to be a law

It’s dismaying to read Shawn Vestal’s Dec. 13 column about Congress’ failure to enact any legislation five years after the Sandy Hook massacre.

Mr. Vestal is intellectually dishonest to his readers when he fails to point out that Chicago has the most restrictive gun laws in the country and yet the highest murder rate.

Tell us, Shawn, what would this law that you propose look like. Hopefully it will banish murder forever. I think you just want to use reams of paper and barrels of ink and never make a commitment to solving the problem.
