Response to Bado letter

By From page A5 | January 21, 2013

EDITOR:  Mr. Bado, I must say I thought your letter was the most ridiculously stupid twisting of all I have written in response to these senseless people committing senseless crimes while using an inanimate object (a gun) which has no brains or ability to think for itself.

First, if “all the articles” you claimed to have read refer to “assault rifles and oversize clips,” then your reading material list is certainly minimal at best. Further, your lack of reading comprehension amazes me. I never once said I owned an assault rifle and I do not. I would support other’s rights to own them.

I suggest you reread my letters over and over until you understand what I was conveying in every one. The fact that I repeated many times for the benefit of those who can actually read and understand text, was that no one will ever be able to remove all guns, rocket launchers, bazookas, you name it, since any good machinist can make them. Perhaps not to Mil. Spec. standards, but workable just the same.

I never said I wanted one, I never said I would use one. I only stated the facts for those “unknowing liberals” as you called them, so they could understand why there will never be a totally gun-free environment in this nation. Politicos can make all the rules they want. Good machinists can make anything we want. Get it now mushbrain? Reread my letters. Or better yet have someone read them to you out loud and slowly so you truly understand.

What you are seeing is a people problem, not a gun problem. Sick people killed other people. Lastly, just because you say you, “own several handguns” does not demonstrate to me, nor convince me that you can use them competently, safely and under duress.
