Atlanta officials refuse to address real problem of ‘criminal violence’
Re: “11 shot in less than 5 hours in Atlanta as gun violence plagues city” (News, July 24), gun violence is it? Outlaw all guns in Atlanta and see if that stops “gun violence.”
Atlanta has a problem with “criminal violence,” and the leadership of Atlanta refuses to acknowledge it or address it. Make more laws and the criminals will just ignore them.
Put the career criminal in prison for the rest of their life, and you may start to have an impact. Remove the criminal element that uses a gun in the commission of a crime from the rest of society, and you make for a safer society. Unfortunately, what passes for Atlanta’s leadership doesn’t have the spine to prosecute the criminals.
