Gun control won't help

THE EDITOR, Sir:

My condolences to the families of the persons recently killed inside the Texas church. Also, I wish a speedy recovery for the 26 persons who were injured in the incident.

The democrats have pounced on the opportunity to revive the gun control debate. I strongly believe they have jumped the gun on this one. According to Texas Governor Greg Abbott, the suspect was denied a gun in the past. According to the US Air Force, it was their error that causes the suspect to pass a thorough background check.

The truth is that no amount of gun control could have stopped the Las Vegas shooter or this church shooter. To put it in Jamaican terms, gun nuh kill people, people kill people.
