Sir: Your leader on the Atlanta shootings (31 July) says, "One day, perhaps, a majority of Americans will think that an abundance of guns is self-evidently a bad thing." That majority already exists.

Gun control supporters are too idle and self-centered to hit the streets, harangue their politicians or contribute money to the cause.
