Letter: Providing another take on violence prevention forum
To the Editor:
I was fascinated by your front page article on violence prevention discussed at a town hall written by Jeff Engelhardt (“Panel talks violence prevention,” January 19), and the discussion about how to promote peace and prevent violence through education, policy and programs.
While attending this event, I was appalled by remarks made by DeKalb County State’s Attorney Richard Schmack, which included the progressive utopian message of taking guns away from law-abiding citizens, and the worship of President Obama’s 23 executive orders. Schmack points to statistics showing homicide rates involving firearms are down 3.3 percent. Furthermore, Schmack posits, “What we have to look at, I think, to some degree … is what are we doing right and how do we expand on that.” Schmack presented the typical liberal message of more gun control.
