LETTERS

In response to 'God, guns & guts'

Posted

To the Editor:
In response to the letter, “God, guns and guts” written by Richard Walsh, I have a few comments.
Richard states that God, guns and guts are the real protectors of mass killings in the U.S. That is his opinion. I would like to state a fact. Out of all the people killed in mass killings in the U.S. (World Trade Center, Oklahoma bombing, mass shootings, etc.) not one person was protected by God, guns or guts. Not one.
He also informs us that, in the deaths of people who die from anything other than being shot, no firearms are responsible. That equates to a tobacco company stating, “The deaths of all those killed in mass killings, not one cigarette was responsible!”
Make no mistake about it, America; the only “weapon” to protect us is critical thought.

Say what YOU think is intelligent. You have a right to your opinion I agree. The FACT is if it wasn't for God Guts and Guns You'd be Dead or never would have been born or be speaking German, Japanese, or Russian right now.

Mr. Chartier, I'm thinking a lot of first responders with a boatload of guts saved a few during 9/11 and Oklahoma. Fire/Rescue/Medics run in to stuff others are running from, to pull others out and stop whatever is occurring whether fire, hazmat, flood or other. Thank God those people were created with the mentality to fight death for others every day.

As far as the Mass Shooting people were saved and the "Mass" wasn't attached to the shooting 'cause by the Grace of God, some one with Guts was there with a Gun. Federal estimates are hundreds of thousands of times a year.

Bad crazy people are with us, to deal with them we need good people with tools to deal with them. That's why we give Police and Soldiers weapons.
