GOP not solely re­spon­si­ble

Re: “Dems should of­fer ideas, skip dis­hon­esty in gun de­bate — Shouts of ‘we must do some­thing’ get us nowhere, Jay Caruso says,” View­points col­umn, Oct. 6.

I ap­pre­ci­ate Caruso point­ing out the ob­vi­ous, since no one else seems to do that. And those who think or say that the Re­pub­li­can Party is solely re­spon­si­ble for a lack of “gun con­trol” (what­ever that means) should re­mem­ber that the Demo­cratic Party con­trolled the White House, Sen­ate and House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives in 2009 and 2010, but did not en­act sig­nif­i­cant gun con­trol leg­is­la­tion dur­ing that time. I’m sure that the then-speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, among oth­ers, have a great ex­pla­na­tion for why that fail­ure was not the fault of the Demo­cratic Party, and I, for one, will look for­ward to hear­ing it. Bill Dubois, Dal­las
