Thank you for your revealing editorial of Jan. 16 reference research and gun violence.

In a related matter on Jan. 16, Wayne LaPierre and his leaders and Rush Limbaugh reached a new low with the NRA TV ad focused on the Obama children and Limbaugh ridiculing the children who were guests of the president at his news conference.

Sensible citizens have had enough. If we care about the values and direction of our country we should support the president’s recommendations for gun safety. Military style assault weapons should be banned again. This time with no loopholes. All gun sales should clear meaningful background checks. Bullet magazines should be limited to very few rounds. And mental health services should be included in all health insurance policies.

Among several other pressing decisions, the GOP should decide if it is to be the party for guns or the party for people.
