I'm sure that my words are going to fall on deaf ears, but I am calling you out for your insults that hurl by proxy. I have read a letter berating the national concealed carry bill and I am insulted by your pandering ways and insulting dramatization.
Nice play on words, nice spin to forward your agenda. I am astounded that you are so completely closed minded and refuse to look at the real picture.
I am a gun owner, I am a hunter and I have a concealed weapons permit. I fully respect life and I fully respect other's rights. I carry a gun in order to protect myself and my family. I own rifles that I use to hunt and provided food for my children.
I am not a criminal. I have no record and I served in the US Navy. I have had to point a loaded weapon at someone when I was in the military and I prayed with every heart beat that I wouldn't have to use deadly force. I am VERY happy to say that I never had to pull the trigger.
My father, grandfather and brother have all served in the military, to allow you to have the freedom to bad mouth a very large majority of law abiding citizens. I too wrote a check to the US Government that stated that I would give my life to the defense of our country. I am proud to have served and if need be, should something happen stateside, I would again defend my family and yours and your right to slander.
The fact that you have lumped all of us law abiding citizens together with and labeled us all as criminals is a slap in the face. My uncle died in Vietnam, someone that my mother was very close to. How can you sit there in your ivory tower and spew your lies and dramatizations upon law abiding men and women?
Do you honestly think that you can get rid of the guns that real criminals are going to get? Do you honestly think that all of the Russian and German etc weapons that are being used by the murderers in Mexico and even here in the states?
Do you honestly think you can stop the criminals from robbing and raping and murdering, especially when their victims are unable to defend themselves?
I am shocked at the verbiage that you have used in your propaganda. I pray that you never have to again suffer the travesty that you endured with your husband. But, that was perpetrated by a criminal, not a law abiding citizen. By the very definition, criminals break laws. Do you really think that they will go through legal channels to break a law?
You disgust me.
