Sensible gun laws
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Three days after the tragedy in Connecticut, I was struck by a sentence in Jim Harrison's novel Legends of the Fall: "Nothing is quite so grotesque as the meeting of a child and a bullet."

As an expert rifleman, I am embarrassed and appalled. It is long past time for some more sensible gun laws in this modern age of advanced weaponry.

Let's protect the children.
