Letter: Treat it as public health problemIt seems to me this “gun control” problem is really a public health and safety problem. So let’s treat it like we did the last big, bad threat:
- Tax ammunition the way we tax cigarettes.
- Use the proceeds to fund and strengthen mental health, firearm safety and education, and background check programs.
It’s a simple, common-sense solution that has a proven record of improving public health and safety and that doesn’t infringe on our fundamental rights.
