Remember Benedict Arnold

By From page A5 | January 28, 2013

EDITOR: I have been reading several letters in the Mountain Democrat about folks who say that they will fight to keep their military type weapons in spite of any federal law that may be passed.

They imply that they will fight for their “rights” not in the courtroom or at the ballot box but in their front yard.

The notion that you will attack a government worker enforcing the law borders on treason. You need to assuage your zealotry. The fact that you actually write to a newspaper your intent to violate a federal law (that does not even exist at this time) is inviting an investigation. Remember what our founding fathers did to Benedict Arnold!
