Letter: A marvel of redundancies



Mari Briggs’ letter of Sept. 24 was a marvel of redundancies (“Our forefathers had great foresee ability,” “the Second Amendment came after the first”) and broad generalizations. Her rambling arguments were mostly NRA talking points, concluding with her point that, “Someone wants to disarm the American people.”

Who is Briggs referring to? Our elected leaders? Victims of mass shootings? Citizens who oppose military weaponry in the hands of anyone with an itchy trigger finger? Briggs then explains that mass shooters are killing innocent people and children because the perpetrators are angry at the attacks on Second Amendment rights. According to Briggs, madmen with assault rifles are merely patriots doing a service for their country. I find this appalling.
