Re "Feinstein pushes for limits on assault-style weapons" (Capitol & California, Jan. 25): Responsible gun owners, including me, are as repelled as any concerning the outrage of killing children.
I have a suggestion. At the end of World War II, the U.S. Army set up a system of accumulated points that could entitle a soldier to go home. For example, points were given for so many months in combat.
Perhaps such a method could be used in determining the purchase of guns or ammunition: Points for home ownership, honorable military service, length of residence in the community, completion of a gun safety course and so on.
However, there should be no tolerance for assault weapons. I suggest a mandatory three-year prison term for the possession of an assualt weapon.
