What a way to start the new year. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others were gunned down in Tucson, Ariz. Guns, semiautomatics, played a part in this rampage and are the real weapons of mass destruction in America. Small arms and light weapons have become a coercive and intimidating force in both political and personal relations. Whether it was Sarah Palin’s “crosshairs” website, talk radio hate-mongering, anti-health care jargon or maybe the failed mental health care system, something set Jared Lee Loughner off. Guns in the wrong hands are the ultimate terror weapons and are undermining the stability and security of our society. Ron Lowe, Nevada City
