Letters to the Editor

Letter: Hypocritical condemnation

Since the early 1970s, those individuals who purchased a firearm from a business had to fill out a Form 4473 with the question: “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana, or any depressant, stimulant, or narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” If you answered “yes,” you couldn’t legally buy a gun.

I wonder how many millions of Americans committed a felony by answering “no” while at the same time recreationally smoking weed. If you did, maybe you should start looking over your shoulder and await your arrest and prosecution just like Hunter Biden. If you are one of those who did commit this felony, stop being a hypocrite by excusing yourself while condemning Biden.
