NRA DOESN’T MANUFACTURE GUNS

SHARE NRA DOESN’T MANUFACTURE GUNS

Regarding John Preston Creer's letter (Forum, May 24), a few points of clarification are in order.

The NRA does not manufacture guns, just like the American Bar Association doesn't practice law. The NRA has never claimed guns are not harmful. It is the essential aspect of them and why they have utility. Remember, lawyers are never harmful to anyone until you use one.The NRA held serve on this issue of rights because most people believed in individual responsibility and freedom. Today's view is just the opposite. Mr. Creer and his ilk want to blame someone or something else.

Mr. Creer has got it wrong with the parable of the lion lying down with the lamb. True peace in the world is not arrived at by declawing and defanging the lion, but by a transformation from within. More likely that transformation will occur if the lamb is armed with the Uzi.
