In Response to: Unarmed and Dangerous

The story of Sandy Hook was terrible in itself, but the actions taken by Alex Jones and his conspiracy-theorist followers made it so much worse for the families and for all of us. Alinor Sterling ’89 (“Unarmed and Dangerous,” December issue) did us a great favor in taking this case and winning it, and it made me proud once again to be a member of the Princeton community.

Additionally, her suit against Remington was a real breakthrough and helped to reverse the opinion of the gun-makers that they were immune to the actions of their customers, even if they encouraged bad behavior in their advertising. I hope that her optimism that we might find common ground on the responsible use of guns is rewarded. There’s just too little “common ground” in the world today.
