Guns ease killing

Guns ease killing

This week, in Buenos Aires, a woman threw herself off a 23-story building. She fell 330 feet onto a parked taxi and survived. Rep. Stephen Sandstrom, R-Orem, and others who believe that guns don’t kill people should spend one evening at a trauma center. They’d realize just how hard it is to kill a human being (like the Argentine woman). But put a moron or miscreant behind the trigger of a semi-automatic weapon, and suddenly it’s easy.
