Ann Landers DEAR READERS: Five years ago Senator Robert F. Kennedy died from bullets fired by a deranged assassin in the ballroom of a Los Angeles hotel. I wrote a col- umn expressing my outrage and shocked disbelief. Today I am repeating that column as a grim reminder ihat Congress has yet to pass a gun law, despite the fact that since that dark day. a record number of civilians, police officers and public fig- ures have been slain by hand- guns. 'Here is the column: Bobby Kennedy is dead. I still can't believe it. A na- tion is stunned. Nobody smiles People read each other's minds as they pass on the street, or in the office corridors, or in the super- markets. Nobody says, "Hello." Everybody says, "Isn't it Strangers become friends for a few moments. Tragedy is a great equalizer. But beyond the sadness are the questions. What does it all mean? Is the country hav- ing a mass nervous break- down? A soldier in Vietnam, when asked to comment on the assassination, asked, "What in the hell is going on back Bobby Kennedy was a fatalist. He was offered extra security in Los Angeles, but refused it. In his own prophe- tic words, "If someone wants to get you he'll get you." Bobby was right. Anyone who wants to shoot you down can do it. It's as easy to buy a gun today as a package of cigarefcttes. How did America gel this way? What in our national nature has produced this love of violence? And love it we must. We adored "Bonnie and Clyde." It broke records. Women flocked to buy leath- er coats like Bonnie's. Men bought checkered suits, like Clyde. We lapped up Truman Capote's book, "In Cold More Familv page 20 Blood." Millions of people were fascinated by the slaughter of "those nice Kan- sas folks.'' TV glorifies crime and brutality. Is this penchant for violence global or American? The figures speak for them- selves. In 1967 guns were in- volved in more than murders in the United States. France had a total of 20 gun murders that same year. Bel- gium recorded 12 people kill- ed by guns in 1967. Of the last 21 U.S. Presidents six have been shot at and four have been killed. According to Dr. John Spiegel, psychia- trist and Director of the Cen- tre For the Study of Vio- lence at Brandeis University, "The United States Presi- dency may be the highest risk job in the world." Cowboys and Indians are a traditional American game. The "good" man shoots the man, and that's the way to get rid of people you don't like. We buy our chil- dren toy guns and holsters and holsters and cap pis- tols and teach them that kill- ing is manly and it can also be fun. The President has appoint- ed a commission to study violence. Until they come up with some answers I'd like to offer a tew suggestions. Don't buy your children toy guns. Don't allow them to watch violence on TV. Don't permit them to see movies that deal with murder. Train your children to settle their differences peacefully. If you see signs of extreme hostil- ity, unusual quietness, or the inability to relate to others, take him to a specialist. Don't wsit until he Mils some- body. Teach your children gentleness is more effective than brutality, that mercy is more satisfying that revenge love is stronger than hate. And here's one more thing you can do. Write or wire your Senator and tell him if he doesn't support a decent gun law the next time it comes up you will not vote for him again. The ballot box is YOUR strongest weapon. Ann Landers.
