Firearms Advocates and Opponents Face Off Over Weapons Ban

The article presents some of the pros and cons of gun control but does not mention the benefits of gun ownership. Each year nearly 1 million people in this country use their guns for their own defense; because of this, they do not end up as crime victims.

Some areas of the country are not closely protected by the police; people in these places must provide for their own defense. Even when nearby, the police sometimes can't provide the needed protection.

Guns can lead to tragic results, but a multitude of tragedies are also avoided when people have their own guns. D. E. Barlow, Scappoose, Ore.
