Letters: Las Vegas shooting reality check

Re “Las Vegas shooting must, finally, stir Congress to act. But will it? (Editorials, Oct. 3): Say there's a fire in a crowded movie theater, and people get burned and trampled to death because there were no fire sprinklers and exit doors were locked. Everybody says: “We have to let the families of the victims grieve. This is not the time to talk about fire safety and building codes.” No. Nobody would ever say that.
