A cowardly bigot’s rant
We received this letter post-marked Springfield from a self-admitted closed-minded bigot who is also an educator. Woe be to her students.
Dear Gun Nuts,
The fact that there is a publication devoted to guns/gun owners is amazing to me. The picture of the cute girl on the cover of the March issue makes me sick. Who knows but what she may someday be the victim of the same weapon that she now “enjoys”?
The second amendment speaks of an armed “militia” – translation – military. Unless you are in the military or in law enforcement, you nor anyone else has any business with a gun. Want to hunt? Keep your rifles stored in a secure location within your town/city and check it out for hunting, then return it. The only reason to have a pistol is to kill. If you use it for target shooting, etc., you really need to get a life.
I am a mother, grandmother, and educator. I care deeply about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You are taking away the rights of many to LIFE and to HAPPINESS when they are victims of gun violence or have to be worried about gun violence. Nothing will change my mind, and nothing will keep me from viewing you and other gun owners as uneducated*, hard-core rednecks. Just calling it as I see it.
If there have to be needless deaths by guns, God, let it be those who promote the ownership of them. It is only fair.

* Shouldn’t your org. be “Guns Save Lives”? This seems like clumsy grammar. Exactly my point above.
