    Just when you think you've seen/read it all, along comes a letter like this one below. This letter showed up today in the Letters to the Editor. Not surprising since the paper is anti-2A. I'll leave the writers name out. I submitted a rebuttal but IF it gets printed, I'd be amazed. On a side note, I guess the writers "immatures" also include the military & every LEO.
    It still amazes me that so many individuals have zero understanding on so many fronts given the access to factual data in this day & age. I still keep asking myself what/why where ideas like the letter come from.

    Guns have become obsolete nowadays
    We are lucky here. We grieve no mass murders among us. If such a tragedy did occur, and it might, we could blame our childish sheriffs who worship guns above public safety.

    Our family once lived in a remote cul-de-sac. An elderly couple next door frequently summoned police about their recurring problem: returning home after shopping, the wife would discover their gun cabinet was broken and guns were missing. After the police recorded their serial numbers, and investigated other robberies, they invariably recovered our neighbor’s stolen guns.

    Our family avoided having weaponry. We noticed that weapons promote crime.

    The Second Amendment was written only because professional law enforcement didn’t exist. Everyone’s priority was recapturing runaway slaves. And after 1815, the British stopped invading America. Nowadays, we no longer must kill wildlife in order to feed our families. Our real danger is nuclear missiles.

    Thus, guns are obsolete. They have no purpose, except as deadly toys among the immature.

    The only thing about the letter that would surprise me is that any gun owners would think this letter "odd". As long as I have been alive the place has been full of people who were anti gun to the point of it being a religion with them. Certainly nothing new. For people who are ambivalent about guns I will "try" to help. For those like the author of the letter, I don't bother. If they bring it up I will shrug and say "the bad people have to eat too, so you will make a good meal". There is no getting through to them. Most will never change until they become a victim. Some even then will not. Hell a lot of gun owners are almost this bad.

    Looking @ the "complexity & content" in the letter, I'm going to vote :s0125:

    This tells you all you need to know him:

    “If such a tragedy did occur, and it might, we could blame our childish sheriffs who worship guns above public safety.”

    I never heard of a gun being arrested, tried or convicted of a crime. Not one. And one will never be because guns like any other object do not commit crimes. People who decide to live at the whim of another person's or groups priority list s all part of the great American experience. It's their right. When something bad happens to them and they call the police and find out there is a more pressing event going on, maybe they can hold a finger out to the home invader and explain the police will be a while. Donuts are half off at Duncan's.

    I never will understand how, by their own admission, life is relatively safe. Obviously the millions of guns in the country held by good people are no direct threat. Even by the writers own example, they weren't hurt. This as another false narrative given by those afraid of self responsibility. Too educated to acknowledge world history from even the last 60 years. To arrogant to believe it could happen to them.

    Dude satire and reality are one in the same with the modern “left” media and political establishment.
    Comedians should rebrand as psychics cuz half their jokes come true

    YEP! Sadly many gun owners even do not believe the "Bill of Rights" is really that. MANY gun owners are all in on saying the "rights" are actually privileges that law makers can decide who gets them and who does not. It's easy to see why they are slowly vanishing.

    Maybe it's "Could-ya-suck?" - the first thing he learned after he moved in to the neighborhood?
