NEA, big government brainwash the young

It is interesting how the same news can be interpreted in such a disparate

fashion. Your editorial (Aug. 23, “A good sign: Students favoring gun control”)

lauded the fact that 90 percent of high school kids are in favor of gun control

as a sign that society is improving. I see the same report as indicative of the

level of brainwashing imposed on our young in schools where the curriculum is

controlled by the NEA and other advocates of big government.

As noted

elsewhere in the same edition, giving up our freedom to self-defense does not

make North Shore residents any less susceptible to rape and robbery-perhaps

more so, since the police can not be bothered to put any more than 30 officers

(10 per shift) on patrol while the rest do paperwork or whatever. Would

potentially armed victims make the bad guy think twice? Not always, but maybe

sometimes.

Another story noted that the mayors and lawyers who are busy

suing (and defaming) the gun manufacturers are demanding free TV time to answer

paid TV ads pointing out that it is easier to blame guns (or knives, spray

paint, matches, etc.) rather than actually trying to stop crime by chasing and

punishing criminals.

Free speech by greedy lawyers and politicians is

okay, but must be stopped for gun manufacturers or anyone else who advocates

personal responsibility.
