The left-wing pattern

EDITOR:

Once again Herr Garon has projected himself as being infinitely more intelligent than our founding fathers. This time it’s an attack on not only our sheriff but on everything from the Tea Party to the Constitution.

Herr Garon, this may come as a shock to you, but if it wasn’t for men with guns, and plenty of them, people like you would be speaking German now, provided of course, you were allowed to live.

As for your renowned Ph.D. and author, who supposedly has all the facts on gun violence (did it really take 26 books to cover the subject? The rise and fall of the Roman Empire only took three!), I believe an in-depth look at the real statistics will show that many more people are saved (and protected) by guns than are harmed by them here in the U.S. — case in point, our military. Do they not protect us from harm? And our police, which you seem to delight in demonizing as “Gun-toting, gun-loving cops” in a direct reference to Sheriff D’Agostini. I’ll just bet that if you, Herr Garon, should face some sort of a dire threat or situation, you’d be the first one to scream for his help. I believe that’s called hypocrisy.

Anyway, I admire your courage by publicly insulting the women of the GOP women’s club. You have shown yourself as extremely brave or just plain stupid.

Keep up the left-wing pattern, Herr Garon. I suggest that, if there is so much you dislike about our way of life here in America, life in Cuba may be right up your alley.
