OK, another gun guy who can’t stay on topic, in the July 27th Journal. And no Mr. Kazmark, I haven’t forgotten Newton Ct. but I seem to think we should do more than tell those parents “Sucks to be you!”

See, Adam Lanza’s mom was a “law-abiding gun owner.” (Having guns kept her safe right? Oh wait.No, Adam shot her with her own gun.) The Viginia Tech shooter was a “law- abiding gun owner,” until he broke the law. The Colorado Theater shooter was a “law-abiding gun owner,” until he broke the law. The Arizona shooter was a “law-abiding gun owner” until he broke the law. The Sikh Temple shooter was a “law-abiding gun owner,” until he broke the law. The parents of the Columbine killers were “law-abiding gun owners.” Dawn Nyungen who bought an AR 15 for the Webster fireman shooter was a “law-abiding gun owner” until she broke the law. How do you disarm them or disarm their family members?

Hunt big game? You don’t need a semiauto for that. If you do you should practice on the range more. Protection at work or at home? Unless you work and/or live in Syria, Mogadishu, Somalia, Afghanistan or Pakisastan. You don’t need a semiauto.
And by the way, one of the NRA Board members is seventies rocker Ted Nugent, who, on the record, bragged about defecating and urinating in his pants for a month. without bathing or changing in order to get out of going to Vietnam. Look it up.
