Regarding “It’s time to talk about gun laws” (Page A31, Sunday), the words from our elected leaders after the Las Vegas massacre increasingly ring hollow and insincere. After every mass killing, they come out with the same words of condolence to the victims’ families, expressing support, offering prayers and assuring them the country stands with them. Every time it’s the same thing. These words have become meaningless.
Actions are more powerful than mere words spoken from the comfort of the capitol in Washington. If they really are concerned and supportive, the senators from the state and the congressman from the victim’s district would attend the wake and funeral for their murdered constituent.
They would then be able to offer the victim’s family condolences personally and explain to them how their loved one died in defense of some absurd interpretation of the Second Amendment. P. Crane, Conroe
