OPINION:

I’m certainly not surprised that a 6-year-old carried a loaded firearm into school and shot his teacher (“Parents want to know how boy who shot Virginia teacher still had gun after backpack search,” Web, Jan. 16). Our moral values have degenerated to the point that our nation’s educators think it’s a good idea to teach sex education to kindergartners and our nation’s librarians think it’s a good idea to have transvestites read “drag queen” stories to children — while we sit back and do nothing. So what’s surprising about a gun-toting tyke?

We can expect more of the same in the future if we don’t recalibrate our moral compasses.
