Sheriff John D’Agostini’s letter to Joe Biden is to be congratulated. However, clear thinking and common sense is not something our Vice President is noted for. He wouldn’t listen anyway. To go on record as opposing the left-wing policies of those who would abrogate or otherwise destroy our freedom under the Constitution takes courage, and for that we all owe our sheriff lasting respect.
His idea of treating the mentally ill instead of turning them out on the street would go a long way in curbing gun-related crime. Also, Hollywood has to have the burden of blame for producing movies of such unprecedented realism and violence that it can’t help but affect our young people to a degree. The recent attacks on our children are an abomination beyond words. It makes me sick at heart to think of it, but banning guns and depriving people of their last line of personal defense will not stop such eventualities. Did passing laws against drugs stop the drug trafficking? Of course not; it’s the same thing with guns. Remember, once a right is gone it’s gone forever.
