LETTERS: Gun debate

Gun debate

As the gun control debate intensifies, regardless of predispositions and the biased media, don’t decide till you’ve heard each side.

After decades of decline according to FBI Uniform Crime Reports, violent crime has surged over the last year. Possibly from the unrest from all the restrictions, business failures, unemployment, homelessness and mental stress thrust our society arising from the coronavirus.

Capitalizing on the recent shootings plaguing the country the anti-gun administration is using this as evidence that we need more gun control appealing to the emotions of the uninformed and ignorant.

The radical left loves their politically-driven agenda-fulfilling research about crimes with guns.

They quote The Brady Campaign, The Violence Policy Center, Everytown For Gun Safety and Giffords Law Center for common sense gun safety to teach us mandated ignorance is the way.

They disregard defensive gun uses and the thousands of times firearms are used to stop crimes and save lives. Millions of Americans legally carry firearms every day.

Go to www.crime research.org and search defensive gun uses for one source presenting facts that are not left-wing motivated.

The patriots did not show up at Lexington Green bearing pitchforks and scythes.

They defeated the largest, best trained military in the world with firearms that were part of their everyday household necessities.

Then the forefathers established a democratic republic rightfully noting that for the security of a free state the people have a fundamental unalienable right to keep and bear arms.
