Letters to the Editor

The Daily Memphian welcomes a diverse range of views and invites readers to submit Letters to the Editor at letters@dailymemphian.com. Submissions should be fewer than 250 words in length. Preference will be given to letters addressing local issues. Writers must provide their name, city where they reside, email address and phone number. Letters that are published will include the writer’s name and city. Anonymous submissions will not be considered.

House Bill 1233 and Senate Bill 1029 — requiring people to attend a safety class if they fail to lock up guns in their vehicles or boats or if they don’t report gun thefts from a vehicle or boat within 24 hours — would be a small, but important, first step toward fixing the problem the Tennessee General Assembly created in 2021.
