Re: the Oct. 4 guest column "Problem is lack of morality, not too few gun laws."

Ken Rineer's argument falls apart when he says the shooter in Las Vegas "used an automatic rifle" and "such firearms are heavily regulated." The shooter used a semi-automatic rifle that he had modified with a device called a "bump stock" which allowed the rifle to mimic a fully automatic weapon. I'll bet there are no regulations regarding modifications with a "bump stock" device. I'm also guessing there are not regulations of semi-automatic weapons like the ones for fully automatic weapons. It's time for more regulations of guns in this country and more health care for psychologically impaired individuals.
