Letters to the Editor

Why so fearful, men?

Why are millions of American males, 30 to 70 years old, so fearful of the nation’s future and their personal liberty that the ownership of an assault rifle is their only hope of saving their lifestyle, their property and their peace of mind?

Unless Congress listens, recognizes and dispels these fears, demonizing knee-jerk reactions will only perpetuate our paralyzing political discord. It will completely destroy the effectiveness of our representative republic.
