  • In reference to the letter of Dec. 17 wanting a parity between how we view guns and cars, since they both kill people:
    Cars, a necessity in many people's lives, must be registered to the owner every year and one must be tested and licensed to drive them. The registration and license must be with the car at all times when it is in use. The use of cars is subject to enforced laws and regulations, and Congress regularly passes new safety requirements. While they are involved in many deaths, rarely is one used to kill a person or animal on purpose.
    We don't want to take away everyone's gun, but I for one would be very happy to see the "double standard" removed and have guns treated more like cars. — Laurie Carter, Ashland
