Gun lore

19th April 1996 at 01:00
In response to "State to pay for shotgun training" (TES, March 29). I would like to make the point that guns are a fact of life, whether used at work, for example in pest control, or in recreation. The more we teach people about safe and responsible use of shotguns the better.
