Kirkpatrick letter: School shooting

The blood of the Parkland shooting victims is on Sens. Crapo and Risch, and Reps. Simpson and Labrador’s hands. They need to do something. You can’t drink until you’re 21 and can’t rent a car until you’re 25 but you can buy an assault weapon at 18 — makes no sense. Our Congressional delegation needs to get rid of the “R” behind their name and work together. Improve the gun laws, improve and tighten background checks, and improve mental health treatment. And yeah, it’s probably going to cost some money — how much is their child worth?
