Guest Commentary: Hook, line and sinker

By Jerry Grehl, Harmony

Guest editorialist Jeff Erding’s passionate opposition of all things that might restrict in any way gun ownership is based on a false premise: a premise that has been sold to him hook, line, and sinker by the billion dollar firearms industry and their lobbyist organization, the NRA. It is the old “slippery slope” argument. Any government attempt to stem the madness, regardless of anything that is even common sense, will lead to “big government” confiscation. Now let’s look at some of the particulars in his anti-gun regulation screed. Mr. Erding says he reveres the entire constitution. Well, maybe not so much the first right, the right to life. The second amendment supercedes that. It supercedes everything, according to Erding. Nancy Lanza’s right to own a semi-automatic rifle capable of a magazine of up to 100 rounds was more important than the right to life of those innocent twenty darling babies in Newtown, CT. and their brave four teachers who were martyred for standing up to her demon possessed son Adam Lanza and his right to possess said weaponry. The right to life is the first right, Mr. Erding. He goes on to say only law abiding citizens will honor the background checks. Mrs. Lanza was a law abiding citizen. So were her snakes in the head son. So was the mass killer in Aurora, CO, Oak Creek, Phoenix AZ, VA tech, and places too many to mention. Erding goes on to make his ultimate argument: (I’ll avoid using his capital letters, a literary devise of screaming at your reader) “Registration means confiscation!” Odd Mr. Erding. I have no such fear. I own pistols, rifles, antique arms, shotguns,and one air rifle. I also do not fear my goverenment, which may be the unspoken baseless fear of Mr. Erding. I’ll agree with Erding that the vast majority of murders are not committed with an assault rifle; but all the massacres, mass killings, employ a high capacity magazine assault rifle or pistol. They are good for only one thing-mayhem! Ninety percent of the American people support background checks. The majority of gun owners like myself support bacxkground checks. The political fight is moot, over. The American people want a vote! The little kids at Newtown deserve a vote, the survivors of the Aurora slaughter deserve a vote. Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark deserve a vote. Question is, are our learned gutless salons in Washington capable of being shamed into allowing a vote?
