RE: “The leftist case against gun control in Vermont” [Viewpoint, Feb. 21]:
Given the recent close call at Fair Haven Union High School, I wonder if David Van Deusen remains as sanguine about the continuation of the status quo in Vermont concerning questions of gun legislation as he maintains.
While it may, by the greatest good fortune, remain just below the surface here, the specter of mass killing is unrelieved in the rest of the country. It should be clear that the present situation is intolerable, and political calculations must be set aside for the welfare of young people.
Can’t we all at least agree that children should be able to go to school without fear that they will be shot?
