Letter: With NRA, get used to shootings

October 30, 2013 

This is a response to the latest school shooting in Sparks, Nevada. John Q. Public, get used to the new reality. It is time to get used to the NRA vision of the world. The new reality is for us is get used to school shootings, mass shootings, public shootings, etc. The NRA solution to the problem is to arm teachers and the public.

My question is to the parents and public: Would you like your student or the public to be in the middle of a gunfight? Oh, by the way, does the NRA represent the gun makers, or are they representing the Second Amendment?
