Letter: Gun opponents' motto: Let's do something even if it's wrong
Gun-free zone: It's a pleasant sounding phrase. Kind of rolls off your tongue; gun-free zone. Almost like Camelot. An ideal place of happiness. Not so.
It is a place established by legislators that is an open invitation to any lunatic to come and murder the defenseless. It is the elementary school in Connecticut where a lunatic broke the law by entering a gun-free zone and murdered four adults and 20 children. They were gun-free, but the murderer accepted the invitation to revoke the status of the gun-free zone.
There are many gun-free zones other than elementary schools, but the schools are easier pickings. The people in Aurora, Colo., know that movies are magnets for the deranged.
There is an old saying, "Let's do something, even if it's wrong." That is what legislators continue to do.
Gun control is absolutely wrong if the intent is to protect citizens in gun-free zones. If that Connecticut school principal had a gun, she probably would still be alive, and think of the 20 children. How can the people who establish gun-free zone laws sleep at night?
So, what if protecting the lives of citizens is not the intent of gun control? What if the real intent is to create a gun-free America? Farfetched? It could happen through licensing, registration and restrictions on buying ammunition, etc. A gun-free America would be much weaker than a well armed America.
Did you know, that former California Democratic State Sen. Alan Cranston was the president of a One World Government organization? Cranston is dead now, but the organization seems to be living on in the activity of many Democratic legislatures.
President Barack Obama, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Gov. Andrew Cuomo all seem to be in the mode of "Let's do something, even if it's wrong." What they are doing is wrong. It will bring about the murder of many men, women and children in the gun-free zones of America.
