    Gun violence is so pervasive, it’s permeated down to our youth. We desperately need an all-out effort to end the proliferation of guns, including pellet guns. Otherwise, we’ll leave a legacy of devastation for future generations. Best wishes to all for a blessed Memorial Day!

    Guns are not the problem. The problem is individuals who do not follow the law and when they use a gun in a crime (wether it be a pellet gun or not) are given no penalties for their behavior. There are over 82 million gun owners in the US. It is not by and large legal gun owners who are the problem but those with criminal intent.
