LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Reader suggests practical solutions to gun violence

There is available, in spray cans, a deterrent for those traveling in areas having a danger from harm from grizzly or polar bears. Either mace or pepper spray has been used.

The mace has been reported to be a more effective deterrent than guns. The spray can travel 30 feet. Teachers and other responsible adults in schools should be equipped with, and carry, these items to protect against shooters.
