To The Daily Sun,
After writing a letter to the editor I don't usually respond to different opinions after I write them. But after reading some brainwashed followers of our dictator-president, I couldn't help thinking of how down-right laughable.
Here is some from Judith A. Ackerson's letter published on Jan. 8: " A president's most important roll as chief executive is to secure the safety and well-being of the citizens of this country, You have just taken a step in the right direction."
How could anyone make that statement and, "We are under attack in this country, not by ISIS and Muslims, as some presidential candidates would like us to believe. We are under attack by gun laws that are antiquated and unable to protect law bidding people."
WOW not ISIS or Muslims. The very day her letter was in The Sun, two would-be terrorists were arrested. One in California and one in Texas. The very next day a police officer in Philadelphia was shot at 13 times, and not only was he lucky to live, with only one arm was able to get off three shots and hit the suspect once.
After his capture, the suspect said he did it in the name of Allah. I don't think a background check would, as the gun was a reported stolen from the police in 2013.
You mention that you drive a three-ton vehicle that could be used to cause the death of other human beings. If you drive like you think, I hope I never meet you on the road.
I love it when people say that 90 percent of the people in this country want more gun regulations. If this was true, why can't new laws be approved by Congress?
Every one blames the NRA but the NRA work for what they believe in and the people that serve us in Congress. The gun laws haven't been changed to satisfy the anti-gunners because Congress knows if they do they will be voted out of office. Being that's the case, where does this 90 percent figure come from? In my state, you need over 50 percent of the votes and most of our elected officials are pro-gun. (Just remember, our governor vetoed the right-to-carry law.)
You remind us that we already have enough gun laws, "this might be true but couldn't we stand to tweak them a bit-or perhaps enforce them."
You hit it right on the head. We would not need new laws if the laws on the books were enforced. Vote for Hillary, you can have a clone of Obama.
