I just read Stephen D’Andrilli’s comment [June 7]. I used to teach at Aviation HS and now live in Massachusetts and have a gun carry license. There was a rigorous background check, one similar to that given to any prospective New York City teacher.
Violent people are everywhere in this country. However, Massachusetts has the lowest gun-related death rate per capita in the country. There are sane ways to grant gun rights to citizens while avoiding the tragedy that has maimed and killed so many of our nation’s children.
