Letter Submission

To submit a letter to the editor, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Letters must contain the author's name, hometown (state as well, if not in New Hampshire) and phone number, but the number will not be published. We do not run anonymous letters. Local issues get priority, as do local writers. We encourage writers to keep letters to no more than 400 words, but will accept longer letters to be run on a space-available basis. Letters may be edited for spelling, grammar, punctuation and legal concerns.

 

The formula is really pretty simple: more guns = less crime

To the editor,

The N.R.A. IS right, thank God. Law makers are constantly trying to take away your gun rights. Our founding fathers spent eight years defeating the greatest army on earth at the time. There's a reasons it's the SECOND amendment.

The N.R.A. IS right, thank God. Law makers are constantly trying to take away your gun rights. Our founding fathers spent eight years defeating the greatest army on earth at the time. There's a reasons it's the SECOND amendment.

No one was shot at a school with an automatic weapon. No one bought an automatic weapon and sent it to Mexico. Automatic weapons have been outlawed since 1932. The most popular gun in American is an AR-15, civilian version of M-16 assault rifle. It is a .22 caliber, hardly high-powered. Gun sales are at an all-time high. Violent crime is at its lowest in 37 years, murder lowest in 47.  One exception: New York City, 5-percent increase in crime and 14-percent increase in murder. Coincidentally, they have the most restrictive gun laws in America. Hmmmm, Mayor Bloomberg has spent millions to take away the gun rights. Virginia passed a law marking all ammo sold, and never solved a single crime using it.

The name of the book is more guns, less crime.
