Evil people always find a way to do evil
Mike Barnett (Your Views, Dec. 16) wrote that if handguns would disappear, there'd be no more handgun violence. Then he asserts that while all forms of violence would still be here, it would simply be a better place without handguns. If handguns were gone, people would still find a way to do evil — sarin gas (Tokyo), explosives (the entire Middle East), computers (driving others to suicide), poisoning (Tylenol, and countless others, individual and mass).
