Guns ensured our nation’s great freedoms

— To counter your comments (from Scripps Howard Columnist Dan K. Thomasson) about NRA gun control, please, take a trip to Arlington Cemetery and stand in the center if you can, and ask all the men and women under the white crosses — why are you here? What did you die for?

The freedom you fought and gave your life for is now being questioned.

I was just a kid like a lot of them were when I served our country for the freedoms we have. If it wasn’t for guns none of us would be here. You would not be here yourself, sir, to write about your common sense.

I want all my rights kept intact, period.
