Guns are a God-given right and protection 

The NRA holds our Constitution together. Without it we would be enslaved. Guns save lives; guns stop crime; guns are why America is free. In a free society where we have the God-given right to protect ourselves, there will be crazies and mass killers. Of course we have to keep these gun death percentages low. 

We must consider them as acceptable losses for law-abiding citizens to be free to protect themselves, and most of all, for the protection against tyranny. Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens will not remove guns from criminal hands. We are advised to not judge all Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

Remove guns and the government will no longer be controlled by the people. Recent history: 

• In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 

• In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

• Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

• China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

• Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

• Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

• Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, 1 million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

After reading Bob Cuddy’s commentary “Do it today” in the May 26 issue of New Times, I became a life member of the NRA.
