Re: “In FWay, four more victims of American gun violence” (editorial, 4-23) and the accompanying cartoon’s last panel, asking why our senators voted against background checks.
What good would a background check have done? According to news reports, the perpetrator had a concealed weapons permit. I am certain that prior to his obtaining that permit, a background check would have been done. He had no arrest record, so he would have passed it.
It is a sad state of affairs, but no matter what laws are in place, the tragedy would have still happened. Everything that is now a law, was in place. Don’t blame our senators for these killings.
