GUN VIOLENCE IN RURAL AMERICA IS SANCTIONED BY THE GOVERNMENT!

ONE OF OUR SUPPORTERS, TERENCE J. CAWLEY, WROTE THE FOLLOWING TO HIS ELECTED OFFICIALS:

To: President of the United States; Vice President of the United States; Governor of Pennsylvania; Senators of the United States of America

Honorable Sirs:

My letter may give you some insight into the recent rash of gun criminality.

I am a gun owner and consider myself a responsible citizen but must say that in my experience there is little or no regard for the law within the gun culture. The more civilized nations have long ago contained and controlled the use of weapons but that has not happened in this country.

In your world it is perhaps unthinkable that a weapons projectile might cross your yard (campus, schoolyard, highway, park) at several thousand feet per second, but in my world this is not only a distinct possibility but is perfectly legal as well. I have reason to believe this is the case throughout rural America and as long as the state and federal governments can be duped and bullied by an irresponsible minority, this will continue.

It is no mystery to me that there are murders in small town America -- the younger generation is bringing to fruition the violence and lawlessness which has been thriving in rural America for many years.

I might add that any government which turns a blind eye to its vandals and a deaf ear to its honest citizens soon earns the contempt of both.
