To The Daily Sun,
There was an interesting commentary, written by Jane Cormier, in the Oct. 23 edition of the Weirs Times. She attempted to attend an Oct. 15 "Anti-Second Amendment" traveling road show in Concord, hosted by former Congresswoman Gabby Gifford. Gifford is taking this show to nine states, pressing for ever-more-restrictive gun control legislation. An Internet check on her activities shows that she and husband Mark Kelly promise to spend $20 million during this election cycle for just this purpose.
Jane and Susan Olsen, chairman of the Women's Defense League of N.H., were welcomed and seated when Tiffany Eddy, of WMUR, came over and introduced herself and the two guests did likewise. Two minutes later both guests were shown the door. Jane states that this was obviously only for a group of progressives and several out-of-state "players" intent on pounding out yet more New Hampshire gun control legislation. Any dissent and any questions could not be tolerated.
Michael Bloomberg is another rabid anti-gun type willing to spend that much and possibly up to $50 million to push his wishes on gun control at any level. Of course this man doesn't go anywhere without several well armed bodyguards surrounding him. This was all paid for by NYC when he was mayor and he took at least five former cops with him into private life. Look it up, you will be impressed by his self-serving nature while doing his best to deprive honest working people of their constitutional right to bear arms and defend themselves if necessary.
It doesn't take much imagination to realize that any of this money, spent in New Hampshire, is going to directly support the campaigns of only the Democratic incumbents, none of whom will unconditionally support the Second Amendment. Their records show an unfailing devotion to Obama and his well known wish for more restrictive gun laws.
Our only hope to avoid this is to regain control of the U.S. Senate with this election. Our part is to assure the defeat of Jeanne Shaheen. Don't leave this up to the other guy. Get out there and vote her down. Don't let this outside money buy this election. Show them the door, just like they did to Jane Cormier and Susan Olsen.
I am pretty sure that very few of this avalanche of letters to the editor will change anyone's mind, so let's simplify this matter. If you are satisfied with the performance of Obama and company, and the direction that he has taken this country, re-elect them all and watch as he continues impose his "Hope and Change" on us all. If not, send them all back home and maybe, just maybe, a Republican Senate and Congress can hold him in check until we see the last of his self-made regime. At that point, let's hope that there is enough of this great country left to salvage.
