Gun culture at fault in the deaths of many
The needless deaths of Molly Conley, Justin Ferrari, Nicole Westbrook and Sherry Soth have been brought to you courtesy of the gross misrepresentation and misinterpretation of the Second Amendment, as presented by that demented organization known as the National Rifle Association. [“Man, 21, pleads guilty in shooting death,” Northwest Wednesday, July 3.]
Our Founding Fathers never meant to perpetrate wholesale murder at the hands of irresponsible fools when they gave us the right to bear arms. That right was given so that the citizens of a new country could protect themselves from outside invasion, keep their slaves in line and hunt for food.
May God have mercy on those named above, and on the thousands more who will die by gun violence before Americans have had enough.
