In the letter published Sept. 25 Gary Mudrock states, "The killers are the mentally disturbed and criminals who have obtained guns illegally."
Guess what, Gary? Aaron Alexis bought his Remington 870 shotgun legally before he slaughtered people at the Washington Navy Yard. Other killers have done the same.
Locally, any mentally ill person or criminal can go to the South Towne Convention Center in Sandy at least once a month to a gun show and buy any gun they want without even getting a background check.
