Dear Editor,

The Navy Yard shootings were perpetrated by a guy who owned and transported a gun in Washington, DC which is against the law there. He then carried it into a military compound, which is against Federal law and proceeded to pick off his innocent and unarmed victims, which is also against the law. What precisely is it that makes the gun banners think that depriving the rest of us of our Second Amendment rights would have kept this murderer from committing any of those crimes?
