Safety may best be learned at the firing range

In reference to Elsa Oberg’s statement in the article “Violent video games put parental judgment to the test” (Page A1, Jan. 8), in which she states that she is antigun but allows her 15-year-old son to play a violent video game, I’d like to quote Mark Twain: “Supposing is good, but finding out is better.”

As a teacher, Oberg should know that first-hand knowledge is best. To that end, as a fellow Framingham resident, I’d like to invite her and her son to come to the range and learn about firearm safety. Perhaps she’ll still be antigun, but, at least, much of the mystery will be removed.
