I read the reply from John Neel to my letter and want to make a few comments myself.
I think he may have misunderstood parts of my letter. I did not in any way say or insinuate any racial intent. Gun control should include every color, race and culture.
That I have ignored the incident of the black kids killing a white child could not be further from the truth. In fact, it reinforces my belief about who should or should not have access to guns!
By the way, Mr. Zimmerman was not getting “beaten to death.” Who followed whom?
Mr. Neel repeated what I said about “a well-regulated militia,” which still does not mean every nut-job in the world. I think our founding fathers would be shocked to see how that has been misinterpreted and used in such a violent manner and as an excuse to arm anyone with a deadly weapon.
This is not the Wild West any more! What is wrong with limiting the rounds of ammunition? If you can’t hit the bull’s-eye or the deer with one or two shots, give it up!
If all of the dollars the NRA spends to elect members of Congress were put to use in education, this would be a better world.
Mr. Neel is correct in saying that freedom of speech is also misused. But I guess it gives all of us the right to voice our beliefs!
