In response to the letters from Carin Gordon and Jane Samples concerning guns.
Let it be known that we have had semi-automatic weapons since 1892.
Why didn’t we have any problems with them for 120 years? Answer — because the freedom of speech amendment did not really include freedom of expression. Now we have Hollywood with filthy rappers, filthy satanic movies and violence subliminally feeding your child’s brain.
Carin obviously is unarmed. Her derogatory diatribe against white males and claiming women and minorities are being picked on holds no merit. When I graduated from WSU, women and minorities, whom were less qualified than I. got jobs ahead of me because of the quota system.
Approximately 25 percent of the woman in Walla Walla are packing iron and had to be fingerprinted and pass an FBI background check to receive their concealed carry permits.
The NRA has a women on target program several times a year teaching women gun safety and how to shoot. The Wa-Hi rifle team, which just won first place in the nation, gets support from the NRA.
Carin then states, “(T) he NRA has been working to undo all those gun laws state by state.” Wrong — it is trying to make it safe in New York because of the new law stating you can only have seven rounds in your magazine. The gun that won the West, the 1873 Winchester, holds 15. Even the police are against this. The NRA is also against the new law in Colorado that limits magazine capacity to 15 rounds and so are the sheriffs.
Jane Samples seems to have ignored the incident in which a white mother was pushing her baby in a stroller and two black kids, 13 and 15, shot and killed the baby. Ironically she is upset with Zimmerman, who was getting beaten to death by this other “child.”
A well-regulated militia being necessary to a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The states are infringing.
