Lefty Blames the Gun. Imagine that~~ Ny News Letter to the Buffalo news Editor response .

This is my letter to the Buffalo News.  Maybe they will print it.


    The column by Douglas Turner blaming a gun for the assassination attempt on a Republican Congressman is typical of the left to shift blame. It is ironic, especially when the media are the ones spewing hatred, vitriolic, and venomous articles on a daily basis against Trump and the Republicans.
    The attack was thwarted by the fact that there were police at the scene who prevented the gunman from committing mass murder.  It solidifies the NRA saying: "The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. Unfortunately in the past shootings, there were no good guys with guns.
    The problems is not with too many guns on the street.  There are too many bad guys on the streets and this shooter, according to reports, should have had his right to possess a gun revoked.  Law enforcement was lax in this matter.
    Chris Collins is right when he says he will be carrying his gun for protection.  Self defense is the original "do it yourself" option for survival. The fact that the wounded congressman had the power to have the police present for the baseball practice saved multiple lives.  Most citizens don't have that option or ability to do so.
    Instead of blaming guns, Turner, and other members of the media should focus on easing tensions rather than fomenting violence with their biased and incendiary rhetoric denouncing the president and staff and confusing the public by opinions rather than facts.  More restrictive gun laws won't stop such attacks by evil people for a very simple reason.  Criminals don't obey laws!
