Supporting our children

To the Editor:

After reading Fred Benson’s commentary, “The kids are right,” in the Feb. 22 edition of the Islander, I must say he is absolutely right. We must support our children in their efforts to reinstate the ban on assault weapons and large capacity magazines, both of which are capable of inflicting mass casualties in a very brief period of time.

I can think of no reason any civilian would need to possess either.

Today’s youths are tomorrow’s adults who will be in charge of our country’s welfare in the very near future. Let’s all stand behind them in their movement to ensure our schools are safe so they will have that opportunity.

Just as they have needed our help and guidance during their formative years, we’ll need theirs in the future.
