Enlightened?

To the Editor,


In 1770 five Americans were massacred in Boston sparking a Revolution.

More than two hundred and fifty years later two eighteen year-olds massacre ten  innocent patrons in a grocery store  and  nineteen third-and-fourth graders and two teachers  at a  school while we wring our hands and do nothing.

And  we, as an enlightened citizenship, endorse the premise that eighteen  year-olds lack the maturity to legally drink alcohol  yet  possess the intellectual  stability to purchase, own and wield an assault weapon ...  all while  our Mothers  weep and our Founding Fathers scratch their heads.
