Randolph letter: School shootings

Thoughts and prayers.

Another mass shooting has occurred with 17 fatalities. Since the beginning of 2017 there have been 307 mass shootings as defined by the gun violence archive, which tracks shootings in the USA. So far the president and the Republican Congress have offered up thoughts and prayers. Well, folks, thoughts and prayers do not stop high-powered weapons. Enough thoughts and prayers, that has not worked. Time to act and begin gun control efforts in earnest.

Rich Randolph, Boise
