Tougher gun laws needed to muzzle the killing fields

God forbid someone shoot bullets holes into somebody’s freedom to bear arms.

So we continue to be held hostage by mass shootings in America.

Hot lead and spilled blood and lives should not be an everyday fact of life in a civilized society.

Shootings, mass or single or whatever, are as common as the sunrise. Maybe we should all wear bulletproof vests.

It happened again Thursday night when a man opened fire with a handgun in a Louisiana movie theater, killing at least two people and injuring at least nine others before killing himself and saving us the trouble.

We can’t control nuts from going off.

But we can control the guns that wind up in their hands.

Of course, we’ve squeezed that bullet from the chamber many times in the past.

And always missed the target.

What about now?
