Letter to the Editor: A Plea for Rep. Lance to Act on Gun Control

85-year-old Springfield resident urges Lance to use voice for gun control.

Dear Congressman Lance,

The recent tragedy has left me,as well as all the world so very sad.

The beautiful lives of the 20 children and adults  is heart breaking. I am only one woman (85 years old and a 60-year Springfield resident) and I would hope thatyou being a very important Congressman could use your voice on gun control.   

I grew up in a better time, I could play outside and never be scared, and the only gun I ever saw was on a policeman.

My children grew up the same way, but sorry to say not my grandchildren or my great grandchildren. I would like to do something to ease the pain, What are you doing to make America safer? I would like to help in any way possible.

My thoughts and prayers are with all the families and may G-d bless them, and G-d bless our beautiful country. 

-Bea Slater

So proud of my Mom's comments-I hope Lance listens to the people that sent him to Washington- The only "right" that really matters is the Right for kids to grow up. Sandy took houses from kids-but Newtown took kids "forever' from their houses.
