Regarding the Sept. 24 editorial “Missouri’s ‘perfect storm’ ”:
The veto override of Missouri Senate Bill 656 takes away my right to feel safe and my right to know that everyone around me carrying a concealed weapon is a law-abiding citizen.
Instead of putting their efforts toward improving education in my state, Missouri legislators have dedicated their time to lining the pockets of gun manufacturers and dealers and giving felons and abusive spouses easy access to guns. Maybe that was their purpose?
Uneducated citizens are more likely to believe the untruths of pro-gun propaganda. How many more innocent people need to die before we revert to more sensible gun laws?
