LETTER TO THE EDITOR: More gun laws not the answer

Once again, according to the political left, gun control is the answer. Violent, angry people will calm down and hug their teddy bears if we just instituted more gun control.

Pro Tip: You better put the Velcro back on your pistol brace.

If you are gun enthusiast, own and/or carry a weapon, or merely a supporter of the Second Amendment and gun rights, I would suggest you sign up for the newsletter.
