    ‘Gun control’ was perfect
    As we approach the fall season and hunting season, I’d like to relate a time and means for safety.
    Recently, five men, a woman, a 6-year-old grandson and two dogs went out to shoot trap and pistol target practice.
    With muzzles always checked, pointed in safe directions, my definition of “gun control” worked perfectly.
    I don’t believe many times in life I’ve felt safer, always aware and alert to anything not going well, but very safe.
    Men and women who use and enjoy guns and shooting sports, please observe safety rules and we can all feel safe.
    —David Swenson
