Letter to the editor: Keep our kids safe

Posted

I am a Castle Rock resident and the mother of five elementary school-aged children. I support the Second Amendment and grew up in a family of responsible gun owners.

When the massacre at Sandy Hook occurred, my oldest child was a kindergartener. The profound fear that your child’s school will be the victim of America’s next mass shooting is something that no parent should have to experience — but many parents, myself included, feel that fear every day.

But there is a law we can pass to make everyone safer.

Red Flag Laws allow family and/or law enforcement to enact a court order that temporarily restricts a person’s ability to possess or purchase a gun when they pose a danger to self or others.

We must act now and urge our legislators to pass a Red Flag Law for Colorado to keep our children — and everyone — safe.
