LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Gun control won’t work

Posted: Sunday, September 8, 2019 6:30 am

The local shooting was horrific and we will have the usual politicians calling for gun control, which does not work; otherwise, Chicago, D.C., and Mexico would be model examples. What we need is devil control! If politicians are serious, they will get on board with 2 Chronicles 7:14 along with everybody else calling themselves by the Lord’s name. Yesterday’s prayer vigils were a good start, let’s keep up the momentum until we have victory over this evil.
