Letter about rebuttal to the writer from Harmony

To the Editor,

The April 15th Journal contains a letter critical of my recent factual analysis of the Obama/Biden gun control plan. The writer not only misrepresented my positions, but the letter was obviously meant to be insulting and demeaning. I am not offended. In his defense, what choice did the writer have?

He made no effort to refute the quotes from Mr. Obama, Mr. Biden, Mr. Schumer, or Ms Feinstein. They were direct and in context.

He did not try to debunk the numbers on instant background checks obtained from Syracuse University. The numbers are verifiable and correct.

He could not quote one fact that would support his assertion the proposed legislation will keep our children or our innocent citizens safer. Not surprising. Hype, emotion, and rhetoric are all proponents of the proposed legislation have to work with. He did refer to [ Newtown killer] Adam Lanza and the killers at Aurora, CO., Phonix AZ., Oak Creek, and Virginia Tech as “ law abiding citizens”. I admit being offended by that. They are in fact criminal mental psycopaths who should, but currently do not, generate a “hit” in the system.

People who buy into an idea that has no facts, proof or statistics to back it up are the ones who are taken “hook, line and sinker.” The writer from Harmony is one of those most likely to end up in the net, not people who like facts and truth absent misleading spin.

But by all means, sir, keep on writing!! Emotion filled letters, entirely devoid of logic and facts, do more to promote the cause of liberty than you can possibly know! They drive home the fact that eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. PS readers: contact your legislators TODAY!!
