Sheriff Says Gun Control Wrong Approach To Fight Crime

Sheriff Danny Glick (Amy Richards/TSM)

Laramie County Sheriff Danny Glick says that while everyone was horrified by the Newtown, Connecticut school shootings, he thinks there has been a misplaced focus on gun control measures as a way to prevent  such tragedies.

Glick says a better approach would be to focus on criminals and people who may be violent due to mental health issues ”rather than our second amendment rights”. He also says consideration¬† of ways to improve school safety is a topic that needs further exploration. But Glick says people who are already legally prohibited from possessing firearms find a way to do so if they want to, and says there is no reason to think further prohibitions would be any more effective.

He also says a look at national murder statistics shows guns are by no means the only weapons used to kill people, and in fact rank lower on the list of murder weapons than many people assume.
