Letter: Simple Solution to Mass Murder

To the Editor:

My reaction to the school shooting in Connecticut: If some insane person comes into my school with the intent to commit mass murder, my response would be so simple. I’d get out my Glock 17 handgun and apply a 52 on him — that is, five shots to his chest and two to his head to account for possible body armor. The problem would then be over: no national news coverage, no gun control debates and no mass obituaries. Problem solved, shooter is dead and no one else is. Just call the police to come and process the single dead body.
