Letter about the NRA

Letter about the NRA

To the Editor,

A recent letter condemed the NRA for:

1) “Promoting a climate of fear of the government”

2) “Defining Liberty in terms of no restrictions on guns”

The writer further stated:

3) “our ownership of guns is not threatened by the government”

4) “children are being murdered” and “growing violence”

In response I wish to offer:

1) NRA has a clear recognition of the role of government. NRA promotes safe, responsible gun ownership and recognizes history proves no society can long remain free when citizens are debarred the ownership of firearms.

2) False statement. NRA has always supported strict enforcement against criminals who commit crimes using guns.

3) Completely false. No further comments necessary.

4) Here Ms. Nyenhuis is trying to create “fear and paranoia.” I challenge her to explain why violent crime rates decline everywhere conceal and carry is enacted, but rise everywhere restrictive gun laws are enacted. (Chicago, D.C., and L.A.)

As Ms Nyenhuis states, we must replace hate, fear, and ignorance with compassion and reason... and I would add a legal way to defend ourselves from those who would harm our families, our fellow citizens, or deprive us unjustly of our property or freedom.
