Guns should be the last line of defense

The letter by Paul Romney ("Guns don't make us safer," Feb. 18), commenting on a previous letter by Carl Russell ("Murder makes the case for firearms in the home," Feb. 14), both concerning the recent murder of a woman by her ex-boyfriend, bracket the firearms debate. But what I want to know is: How did the ex get into the woman's apartment? Was her apartment equipped with a steel door, or a peephole, or a hall video camera, or an alarm system, or a safe room, or a panic button, or a big, mean dog?

Guns should always be the last line of defense. Once they are drawn, someone is probably going to die.
