Re: “Many owners fought for rights” (letter, 6-1).
The original letter (“Retaliation for letter is revealing, 5-24) refers to gun owners who believe they can take on the U.S. government with their semi-automatic weapons. The writer calls them fourth-graders. It’s clear the writer is not referring to all gun owners, just those who want to govern by private militia instead of the rule of law.
In the response letter, the writer states: “How about we do this: He keeps his nose out of my guns, and I’ll keep my guns out of his nose.”
This statement implies that if the original writer does not like this writer’s political beliefs, he will be shot in the head! This is clearly intimidation.
Shame, on The News Tribune for printing this response. I suggest the editors educate themselves on what bullying is, with all its evil manifestations, including intimidation. This incendiary letter did not belong in a community newspaper.
