Rep. Jim Sacia calls a concealed carry law, â€œpretty common sense stuff.â€
As I see it, itâ€™s all a bunch of B.S. conceived by the biggest lobbyist in the country, the National Rifle Association. The NRA declares everyone should have the right to have a stockpile of weapons. The only interest the NRA heeds is the gun and ammunition manufacturers.
That’s right, there aren’t really 4 million members who actually support the NRA and their goals. But that’s not the real meat in this hysterical letter. Oh no, it gets so much worse.
Our legislators are voting on a bill to allow the average citizen to carry a concealed weapon and to use it when they deem it necessary to take the law into their own hands. The only super heroes are the police who deal with crazy people every day and are putting their lives on the line for all of us.
Do we all feel unsafe?
The police are in uniform with a badge and a gun in plain sight for a reason. We know who the good guys are.
Super heroes? Really? And what about the officer who shot his ex in front of their child with innocent bystanders around, then led other officers around on a police chase that involved not one, but two other shootouts with innocent people nearby? Is that the kind of behavior that the “good guys” exhibit in the context of their “super hero” work? I’m not anti-police officer, but that’s really on the edge of being delusional to think that sometimes bad people don’t make their way into a uniform. It’s also delusional to believe that just because we hire police means that we are somehow protected from criminal activity. If that were the case, then we wouldn’t have crime at all in this country.
When I read this to Sebastian, he suggested I look up the writer to see if he’s an anti-gun activist. It is such a far-fetched and extreme letter that it seemed impossible that it would come from an average citizen. Not surprisingly, he is an activist. Whether he’s done any specific work with anti-gun groups, I did not focus on after I found his other letters to the editor. They publish him every few months, and he is specifically targeting his local lawmaker in every single letter. One of the letters also defends the HSUS agenda, so he’s pretty clearly not on the side of any lawful gun owners – whether they carry concealed on the sidewalk or carry openly in the fields & woods.
