    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Most of the guns being used in the Chicago shootings-which are primarily south side, are illegal. The FBI, in investigating many of these crimes found that 60% of the guns had come from out-of-state and a vast majority of them came from Indiana, whose gun laws are much more lax than those in Chicago/Illinois.

    St. Louis guns come from Missouri, Chicago guns from Indiana. That is why the criticism. We need to get universal gun restrictions covering all States.

    Oh, Frank, there are laws on the books to cover guns. The recent shooting in Texas was an example of failed enforcement of existing laws. Millions of people own guns legally and rarely commit crimes. One thing to help stem gun violence is to make the punishment more severe. Also, anyone caught using an illegal gun in a crime should not be given out on the street in a few days. This is very common practice and leads criminals to feel there is little or no reason not to use a gun. What do you mean by universal gun restrictions covering all states, Frank? There are already universal laws on the books. I think, what you are talking about is the banning of guns. Next thing you know, you will be wanting to eliminate other parts of the constitution. If you do, then start a petition drive to change the constitution.
    While we are on the subject of preventing unnecessary deaths, let's make it illegal to drive a car, while intoxicated or high on drugs to prevent traffic deaths of innocent victims.
    These guns deaths are tragic, but stop blaming or trying restrict gun ownership by the millions who own guns and use them peaceably. Go after the criminals.
