We love guns

Responding to: “Put people first, consider gun control,” published Oct. 4:

You would probably be better off writing for the Dallas paper with a more liberal constituency. This is rural Wise County, and we love our guns and want to keep them.

When a bomb explodes in a crowd, killing many, we blame the bomber not the bomb. When a car drives into a crowd, we blame the driver, not the car. Why then, do they blame the gun instead of the shooter?

The gun is not the problem; crazy people are the problem, so ban crazy people.

You say that 62 percent of Americans support stricter gun control laws. I doubt that is the case in Texas. Those statistics would be from New York, Massachusetts, California, etc.

We, as Americans, have the right to keep and bear arms. Period!
