Gun culture is to blame

The legal culpability of Erick Walker for the random and senseless death of Molly Conley remains to be determined. [“2nd-degree-murder charge in fatal drive-by shooting,” NW Wednesday, July 3.]

However, we already know one thing about the suspect: He is a firearms enthusiast. This is hardly a surprise.

Until we enact sensible gun laws, every domestic dispute or argument in a bar, every individual experiencing an episode of despair or young man on the street who thinks that he has been “dissed,” and every gun nut cruising around in his car will represent a potential tragedy waiting to happen.

Guns and our insane gun culture in this country now represent a form of domestic terrorism.

Richard Williams, Wenatchee
