Letters to the editor on gun laws, KU professor, airport name

Regarding “Gun-control efforts won’t be as urgent” (Sept. 23 Letters to the Editor): A mentally unstable individual – who should not have had a military security clearance, who had previous problems with guns and who should have been in the database for background checks showing he had mental problems – was able to buy a shotgun, enter a military facility and kill 12 people. And that is the National Rifle Association’s fault? I fail to see the logic behind blaming the NRA for a failure of our government to enforce laws already on the books or to ensure that those with mental issues are identified and their security clearance revoked and ability to purchase guns restricted.
