Reference “Falkenberg: We’re Pulitzer finalists. It’s bittersweet,” (May 12): I applaud the editorial board’s dedication to advocating for sensible gun reforms. I have a common-sense suggestion that may help. You accurately point out that Texas’ permissive gun laws are, at very least, part of the problem. You go on to point out the failures of Texas politicians and the Texas Legislature to even attempt to address this most horrific circumstance, in direct opposition to the clear desire of the vast majority of Texans. While this is true, it is not the entire truth. Blaming politicians and the Legislature as a whole provides cover for those truly responsible for this unforgivable inaction.
