To the editor:
Letter writer Carol Weaver (Stop crying support solutions) thinks an assault weapons ban and a gun buy-back will help stop the violence.
Sorry, Carol, but as an almost 40-year veteran police officer (and chief), it just doesn’t work.
We tried an assault weapons ban from 1994-2004, and it had zero effect on crime or shootings.
We banned heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine. How’s that worked out?
There are 80 million Americans, owning more than 350 million legal guns, who did not commit a crime today.
