Guns and St. Mary’s

To the Editor:

We are gun owners and hunters. Weapons of mass murder such as assault rifles, giant magazines and “cop killer,” armor-piercing bullets are not needed for hunting or home protection.

In defending these military-type weapons, the NRA is defending only the needs of terrorists and future mass murderers. A civilized society would ban them.

If the city leaders of McHenry want to trash the heart of their city, they will approve a 24 hour gas and alcohol station next to St Mary's church and elementary school.

We think that safety and quality of life are more important than tax revenue.

Bill Winkel and Mary Winkel
