Letter: Media are not to blame for massacre of students

To the editor:

In response to William Barkin's March 2 letter, "Biased media give short shrift to school security," the writer parroted the NRA talking points about school shootings and accused the media as though they were responsible for the 17 massacred people in Parkland, Fla.

Mr Barkin's theory that all shootings would cease if we turned our schools into armed fortresses is embarrassing and unreasonable.

Perhaps he would like to volunteer soon in a security position at his local school.

Susan Rector Barkin,
