America is welcome to keep its gun culture
Editor: It was with consternation that yesterday, I received a local flyer with a full page ad for assault rifles and other restricted weapons.
I should point out that I grew up in a hunting culture, I am ex-military, and am a sometime small game hunter myself, but I can think of no conceivable reason for civilians to possess tactical weapons with large magazines, and bayonets.
I recently returned from a trip to Colorado.
I find it supremely ironic that in the so-called “Land of the Free”, there are so many security restrictions and cultural curbs based on the fear of gun violence, yet in the name of freedom, they dare not tackle the thorny issue of reasonable restrictions on their Second Amendment rights.
I sincerely hope we do not reach that slippery slope, where we feel the need to “arm all the kindergarten teachers” here in Canada.
