Don’t repeat NRA lies

To the Editor:

When gun advocates get down to their last argument, it’s always that citizens need guns to resist an oppressive government.

I hope the gun lovers have been watching their TVs. Now the whole world knows how stupid that argument sounds.

The entire forces of the NRA cannot resist what government can bring to bear. It is ridiculous to think so. If you have a love for marksmanship or hunting, fine. If you earn a livelihood by dealing with bad guys, sure, get yourself a gun. If you have property of value that someone might steal or take by force, you may need a gun.

Remember that if you have a gun in your house, the chances that it will be used to hurt someone you love are increased.

The Supreme Court considers what congressmen say when a law is passed. Chances are pretty good that if they say the law will not infringe your rights, it won’t. Don’t prove yourself a fool by repeating the lies being told by the NRA.
