 To the Editor

"Thomas Jefferson described our inalienable rights as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  I do not think the order of those important words was haphazard and casual. The liberty of any person to own a military assault weapon and high-capacity magazine and to keep them in their home is second to the right of my son to his life."  This was spoken by Dave Wheeler, whose son Benjamin died at Sandy Hook Elementary on Dec. 14th.

No one is talking about taking away hunting rifles, and yet the NRA has convinced reasonable, sane people that this is what's on the anti-gun violence agenda.

It's time for intelligent sportsmen to open their eyes, think, and speak out against the madness of owning military assault weapons.  You don't use them to hunt.  I have listened to the opinions regarding "anti-gun" legislation, and I haven't seen anything that made me believe the pro-gun sentiments are based on fact, common sense or open-minded reason.

Stop lapping up the propaganda of the folks who want to earn more money from paranoid gun-buyers and start thinking for yourselves.  Prove to me that you're smart enough to be a responsible hunter.  Most of you are not those who equate the deadliness of their firearm with the size of their dick, so be men and stop being suckers.
