And now, a rather to-the-point letter by my uncle Gilbert Aragon sent to the Albuquerque Journal after they ran today (1/2/2016) a nasty cartoon comparing the NRA to a death cult:
I cannot see how a newspaper can go out of its way to insult its readership with such a nasty cartoon as you ran Saturday comparing the National Rifle Association to a death cult. The NRA is a respected and LEGAL gun ownership and advocacy organization. What kind of sick mentality runs anti-gun garbage like this? Is this the kind of propaganda that's going to be used to justify Barack Obama's anti-second amendment trampling of the Constitution?
If you're so fearful of guns, could you demonstrate to me where you've disarmed your own security guards? Let's see the Journal put their actions where their brains are.
Why should we feel guilty and stand idly by as you try to associate the NRA and us gun owners with the crimes of others. Why on earth should law-abiding Americans be apologetic to a herd of unrepresentative liberal media nitwits who disdain personal constitutional liberties for a fanatical, religious worship of Big Government stupidity.
If the NRA is so evil, please show me the membership card of San Bernardino, California killers Syed Farook and Tafsheen Malik; of Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev; of Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes; of Fort Hood military base gunman Nidal Hasan; of Arizona Representative Gabby Giffords attempted assassin Jared Loughner; of Virginia Tech mass murderer Seung-Hui Choi; of Charleston, South Carolina black church shooter Dylan Roof; of Sandy Hook Elementary School killer Adam Lanza; of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.
If you're going to damn the NRA show me the NRA cards of these murderers. And while you're at it, since you're so concerned about mass killings, tell me how many NRA members work for Planned Parenthood.
