Letter: Committing crime with a gun is potential murder

Crown Food Mart Robbery

Surveillance photo of a man accused of the armed robbery of a Crown Food Mart in St. Louis on Oct. 26.

In my opinion, anyone committing a crime while carrying a gun should be charged with attempted murder. The carrying of a gun in the act of committing a crime indicates intent to use the gun during the act of crime. A gun only has one purpose, which is to take a life. 

I believe this will get many guns off the street. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but from evidence in other countries, it works.
