Not all gun owners are responsible
TO INTELL EDITORS:
It seems the cartoon of March 12 on the Intell opinion page comparing Wayne LaPierre of the NRA and Kim Jong Un touched a raw nerve.
While there are some obvious and some less obvious differences between the two leaders, in full view are two quite cartoonish characters.
In Mr. Stoltzfus' stern lecture on the wisdom of the framers -- letter of March 27 -- we are instructed on how the security of the states depended upon militias, but we are left unenlightened as to how the framers could anticipate quite different circumstances in our world, some two-plus centuries in the future.
Nations drawing up a constitution today are no longer looking to our ancient document for guidance, as was previously the case.
The NRA may well be made up of responsible, hardworking, freedom-loving and God-fearing Americans, but is it not possible that some members may be irresponsible, non-God-fearing individuals?
