Gun control letter was overly optimistic

Craig Kupka, I appreciate your thoughts about guns (“Hunting rifles, shotguns are enough,” Mailbag, Feb. 6), but you are an optimist. If you think owners of illegal guns are going to surrender their handguns and military-style weapons don't hold your breath; you won't live that long.

Your thought on rejuvenating the mental health system is a goal we should attempt to achieve. Unfortunately, the mental health system is so fractured it will take years and billions of dollars to reach a meaningful status.

Keep in mind that only the honest citizen will feel the wrath of gun confiscation, and they are the majority.
