We are hometown news

No surprise

Why are we surprised by the recent shooting in Arizona? Why do we, the citizens of this country, who would like to see some gun control, let the NRA and some of their aggressive and militant followers continue to accumulate guns and assault weapons? We have not done our job! In Springfield, even with the addition of more police officers, murders of teens and others, continues. We, the responsible adults, have not done the job of letting all of our representatives in the city, the state and the federal government hear our voices. Stop the violence! Destroy the guns and learn to live with your neighbor. Mary Rosenthal Springfield
