I take it Gordon Ainsleigh is not a Democrat. He enlightened us with his analysis of which persons were responsible for the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School (Reader Input, Dec. 18). He came up with two — not the shooter or anyone close to him but two Democrats for acts or omissions that occurred decades ago — President Bill Clinton and Diane Feinstein, the latter authoring the assault weapons ban in the early 90s.
I don’t know if he was being deliberately absurd to prove a point, but my point is this: why did he not include the scores of Republicans who supported this bill, especially the one who worked most tirelessly for its passage, another president of ours, Ronald Reagan.
