The report of the New Kensington hammer attack (“Incidents expose domestic violence,” VND, March 5) brings to the forefront the problem of unregistered hammers.

There are millions of hammers in the hands of Americans. And not just small hammers but big 12- and 16-ounce hammers. Even sledgehammers.

Why do we need those? You can drive a nail with a small hammer.

I call for legislation requiring background checks of all persons buying hammers, immediate registration of all hammers in the United States and an outright ban on all hammers larger than a ball-peen.

Let's keep our citizens safe.
