Memorial to victims should be gun control

Isn't it amazing that we regulate the safety of our cars, our medicines, our children's toys and other things to keep us safe, but we make it easy for a young, troubled and mentally ill man to get a gun?

It makes you wonder how this young man could buy a gun and rounds of ammunition when he was found too unstable to attend the community college or enlist in the military.

Our best memorial to all those killed and wounded that terrible Saturday in Tucson, Ariz., is to regulate firearms as seriously as we regulate everything else.
