Gun control and crime control

The editorial ``A Cry from the Capital,'' Oct. 25, notes that Washington, D.C., has more murders per capita and more police per capita than any other United States city. There is no mention of the fact the Washington, D.C., also has the most restrictive gun laws. When people promote more restrictive national gun laws to reduce crime, they should look at past experiments in this area. Frank Bergren, Anchorage, Alaska
