Researching letter proves enlightening

April 23, 2013 

Regarding "Gun owners nothing like Kim Jong-Un" (April 21, Letters): After researching online a quote regarding gun control attributed to Adolph Hitler, I found websites that said there was no evidence that Hitler ever made such remarks.

Also, the writer suggests asking people in Syria "how they feel being unarmed and slaughtered." Comparing a brutal dictatorship to the U.S. government, which consists of representatives we elected, is just dumb!

I wonder if people who own guns because they worry about our "tyrannical" government think about the fact that they would be pointing those guns at the very troops that we support with our car bumper magnets.
