High­way signs used for tar­get prac­tice

The Compass - - OPINION - Alex But­ton New Chelsea

Dear ed­i­tor,

Re­cently while trav­el­ling through the Is­ling­ton-Heart’s Con­tent area of Trin­ity South I was an­gered to ob­serve that most high­way signs had been blasted by gun­fire.

There are more than enough haz­ards on our roads al­ready without hav­ing to worry about the pos­si­bil­ity of tak­ing a bul­let through your wind­shield.

Peo­ple such as th­ese should not be in pos­ses­sion of guns. Their ir­re­spon­si­ble ac­tions re­flect badly on all firearm users. Since th­ese acts had to have taken place dur­ing day­light hours, surely some­one must have seen th­ese id­iots in op­er­a­tion. In the in­ter­est of pub­lic safety I urge you to re­port them to the RCMP.
