Kudos to Dan Rodricks for his article comparing the Avi and Eliyahu Werdesheim case to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin ("The difference is a gun," April 29). He is 100 percent right in his analysis.
I just wish more legislators would listen to common sense. A gun kills on contact, period. How many more people will have to die before we think of better ways to interpret the Second Amendment?
Unfortunately, we will always find hatred, vengeance or racism somewhere in someone's heart. The presence of a gun can translate those feelings into tragic stories.
