Letter about follow up to commentary on “Insure domestic tranquility”...


Mon, Jun 1st, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

It has come to my attention – the parents of Jessica Ghawi, who was one of twelve people who were killed in the Aurora, Colo. mass shooting, were ordered by a judge in Colo. to pay $220,000 to the manufacturers who sold James Holmes the weapon that killed their daughter. Colo. state law requires that plaintiffs who sue the manufacturers of gun products pay the companies legal fees if they lose their case. (In 2005 President Bush signed a law protecting gun makers from being sued.) In 2004 the law prohibiting assault weapons expired. President Bush opposed extension of the law and the Republican controlled congress agreed.

April 10-12 the NRA Convention took place in Nashville, Tenn. It was attended by a number of Republican Presidential hopefuls, including Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, Scott Walker, Mike Pence, Jeb Bush, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum. Donald Trump was added as a speaker. The NRA contributes to their campaigns and enlists their support in passing legislation that promotes the sale of guns, not the safety of the American people.

Respectfully submitted,

Yvonne Nyenhuis
