Column bears repeating

Having taken Les Palmer to task for what I considered to be a particularly inane column in your February 1st edition, it is only right that I should comment on his column, entitled “Gun control begins at home,” in your February 8th edition. In this column, it would have been easy for him to have taken the NRA position, and I’m sure that would have brought him many plaudits from your readers. Instead, he acknowledges that there is a gun problem in our country, and we need to deal with it. The final paragraph of that column bears repeating: “If we can’t show that we can safely and responsibly handle firearms, we can expect an escalating war against guns. It’s difficult to convince someone of how important it is for you to own a gun when you’ve just shot yourself in the foot.”
