    Letter to editor on the importance of gun rights @ local college

    Here's the redacted scan of the recent letter I wrote that ended up being published in the local university newspaper. This was after stipulation in further e-mail correspondence that my surname not be published for the obvious reason.

    If the tone of the letter doesn't strike the right chord, I apologize.

    Great letter. What was the anti-gun image they used?

    They ought to replace the image of the firearm with one of a cop slapping cuffs on a badguy.

    Glad you did this. It also tells people out there that people who are licensed to carry are law abiding citizens. Good Show!!!

    A polarized image of the semiautomatic pistol. Black background and silvery white image of the pistol adjunct to the headline caption "Police Blotter".

    I'll look for a previous edition to scan the image if I can locate it at college. The block art remained for a year or so before I finally complained.

    It's always been a mystery to me why people want law abiding folks who are attending college to be unable to defend themselves. Reminds me of that Dairy Queen ad in which the cute little girl tells her mother, "just like shootin' fish in a barrel."

    Nothing I say as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice. Legal questions should be presented to a competent attorney licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    Very well written! Objective and non-emotional, I love your emphasis on "responsibility."
