Love trumps rage

In "Where is the rage?" (Forum, Dec. 18), Tom Nixon wrote: "I am so sick of reading about the forgiveness or the lack of 'animosity' by those who have lost loved ones to gun violence. Where is the rage?"

Rage is everywhere, that is why so many people are killed in senseless acts of violence. I am glad there are still good people who have the strength and courage to forgive those who have done terrible things to them.

We have plenty of anger and hatred in this world. It is time for each of us to show more love and acceptance.

When people act out in violent ways, it has more to do with their anger and sadness than whether they have a gun.

It is sad when someone chooses to use a gun to take a life, but that is no reason to take away our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Things can be done within the law to regulate the kinds of guns people own and to ensure they know how to safely use them.

If we want to live with less violence, we need to find nonviolent ways to solve our problems.
