Criminals are the problem, not guns

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— The mass killings are a tragedy, and should not occur. But every time it does the anti-gun people find a way to chip at our right to bear arms.

The gun is not the problem; the mentally ill, criminal-minded person with the gun is the problem.

Go after the real culprits, the mentally ill and criminal-minded people. We have enough gun control laws. Not enough laws are enforced. Educate, treat and harshly punish!

The idea is to slowly disarm the American people, and the government is slowly gaining ground.

The president has armed guards to protect himself and his family. Do we, the people, not have the  same right? And with whatever it takes!

America wake up before it’s too late — Obama wants to dictate, not lead.

Voice your opinion!

Together we stand, divided we fall.
