Effective Gun Control?

Presidential sincerity

In the Opinion page article, "Bush's Human Rights Gap," May 19, the authors make a comparison of approaches to human rights violations around the world by Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush. Somehow, Mr. Reagan is portrayed as having a more positive effect on human rights problems than Mr. Bush, even though Reagan may have been no more sincere than his successor. I wish the authors had provided at least one instance in which Reagan's concern, sincere or not, improved a human rights situation in a f oreign country, or at home, for that matter. William V.
