Letter to the editor: All guns not created equal

Posted

Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock, and senior members of his staff have addressed the Highlands Ranch Senior Club on several occasions about how to  protect ourselves from scammers, home and auto break-in theft, etc.  While this is useful information, most of us have experienced a lot worse, especially the men and women who have served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

What we will never hear from Sheriff Spurlock is how to protect society from certain types of guns (military-type assault rifles with a 30-round magazine capacity). These guns have no useful purpose except to kill people, but are a taboo subject for law enforcement to discuss.

As a hunter who has bought hunting licenses for more than 50 years, I am not anti-gun and will never be anti-gun, but is time to have an honest conversation about guns in our society that have no other purpose than to kill people. I would like to hear from Sheriff Spurlock how law enforcement views these guns.
