Letter to the Editor 5-10-13
I am writing in response to Susan Sutton’s article in the May 3rd edition of the Blade-Empire.
Ms. Sutton’s supposition is that guns have taken our most talented leaders.
Does she believe that the people who use the firearms hold no blame and it is all about the guns? What has happened to the concept of personal responsibility for one’s actions?
Compared to the 55,000,000 plus babies who have been aborted since 1973, with our government’s blessing, the number of people killed by firearms is miniscule.
Where is the outrage and where are the tears for this mass murder? Who knows what one of those innocent children might have become?
Before you go after my second amendment rights, guaranteed by the Constitution and The Bill of Rights, why don’t you acknowledge that abortion is the largest stain on our country? Where are the articles about this travesty? I, for one, do not understand why it is okay to kill babies en masse, but feign outrage over the actions of a few disturbed people. Blaming all gun owners for the despicable actions of a few is shallow and shameful.

"Amen to what you said brother, Amen and Amen. Guns, not abortion made this country great. Let's face it, sure some people were shot and killed with guns that some people think shouldn't have but what the hey, it happened, get over it. If George Washinton and Thomas Jefferson hadn't gut shot a bunch of British bullies this would not be a free country today! Guns in the hands of true patriots like myself is what allows the average American to go to church and to Wal-Mart without having to worry about a criminal taking advantage of them. There is nothing that makes me feel safer than the weight of my Colt .45 in my shoulder holster. It also comes in handy when you have a mouthy waitress or some low life like that gives you a bad time. When I pull that .45 out and shove it in their face, well, let's put it this way, I don't have to put up with slow service and I sure don't get any guff for not leaving a tip, that's for sure. I think it should be the law that every person over the age of 10 should have to own an AK 47 or an AR 15. If everyone carried one of those babies around I guarantee you there sure wouldn't be any school ground pushin' around like we have today!! Thank Jesus Christ for Guns and for America so help me God."
