Bear arms letter

By From page A5 | April 10, 2013


Holy smokes! I must commend the creativity of the reader who wrote about the “Right to Bear Arms” in Friday’s edition of the Mountain Democrat. In exercising his right to free speech, he cleverly utilized several suppositions as fact to try to prove his point. Most people reading the letter probably realized that without knowing who the “idiot” apparently discharging a weapon was, there could be no guarantee that the “idiot” was an NRA member. Concurrently, without knowing the direction of the “pop, pop, pop” the reader concluded that the discharge was into the air and associated the assumed act to an act of “lunacy” that resulted in the death of an 8-year-old girl 30 years ago.

The point of this letter is to those of us that frequently like to give our opinions … be sure the statements you make are fact based through either direct observation or through research.
