Dear Editor:

Outrage at the Connecticut schoo1 shootings is justified. As Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly said, “What happened there was pure evil.” The shooter tried to buy a gun but was denied. He stole and used an AR-15, not (contrary to media rants) capable of delivering automatic (spray or burst) fire; it is semi-automatic like many hunting rifles — you fire one bullet per trigger pull. Machine guns have been illegal in the United States since 1934, and since the 1980s, it has been illegal to manufacture and sell any automatic weapon.
