Your Opinion: Blame gunman, not guns 2

Dear Editor:

Although Mr. Williams would like to blame guns and gun owners for the recent tragedy in Tucson, I would prefer to place the blame where it belongs. It belongs with the crazed psycho who committed the murders. Why is it that we try to blame anyone but the person responsible for these crimes?

If he’d run the victims down with a car, would the rest of us be responsible because we own a car? Give me a break. It’s not talk radio hosts’ fault, it’s not Sarah Palin’s fault, it’s not Barrack Obama’s fault, and it’s certainly not any other gun owners fault.

Blame the guy who pulled the trigger ... period.
