Gun violence, in particular suicides, is reaching epidemic proportions all across the country. Utah is no exception. Our Legislature refuses to enact legislation to help alleviate the problem. Universal Background Checks, Gun safety requirements and education concerning firearms would be a step in the right direction.
With incentives from the NRA and gun lobbyists, our legislators are swayed away from gun reform. The majority of people support stronger gun laws. Isn’t it time our representatives start acting responsibly?
