Letter: Mass shootings by white males still acts of terror
Nov 08, 2017 | 4:31 PM
So, how many mass murders by a lone white male have to happen in our nation before they are deemed to be acts of "terror?" For we still only use the word "terror" when a shooting is done by someone identified as being a member of ISIS.
Why does Congress avoid enacting laws that would ban weapons designed to take the lives of many? Guns that have no other purpose than to take multiple lives. Lives of people who have posed no threat to the shooter or his family member. Guns that are never used for the purposes of hunting.
I no longer go to the movies or other public venues without looking for the nearest exit in the event of a mass shooting. Something in my earlier years would have been unthinkable.
