Letter: The irony of gun control
To the Editor:
As former New York City mayor Bloomberg continues to promote his laugh-inducing pursuit of saving us all from kid-gobbling pop machines, the world watches.
While our government works to pry the rifles from the hands of patriotic Americans, the world is watching.
As the Iranians observe us, they giggle at our current administration’s politically obsessed attempts at disarming Americans. Meanwhile, they chant “Death to America!” their fists held high in the air. To them, a disarmed U.S. would be highly desirable.
We are an American populace that still foolishly believes that Russia is no longer an enemy, or a threat. On the contrary, they are an insanely power hungry country. Anxious for world dominance. A nation bent on vindication.
Global contempt for the U.S. is now beyond our wildest dreams. We are a country that is loathed. Our enemies are just “licking their chops” at the prospect of murdering millions of Jews and Americans.
Many politically motivated chimpanzees, here in the U.S., continue to persist that disarming us will somehow accomplish world peace. At this point, we may as well all resort to fat-inducing energy drinks.
As Putin and Ahmademajad dust off their 1980s nukes, certain politicians in the U.S., anxious to accomplish their hidden agendas, still seem to fail to recognize this enormous threat. Instead, they continue to whittle away at our constitutional rights, throwing out countless currency, to accomplish what the Japanese would have thoroughly enjoyed watching us do during WW II: Americans being disarmed by their own government.
During that time. The Japanese weren’t very thrilled, when the topic of invading the U.S. mainland would arise. Partially, because our enemy was “armed” with the knowledge that every patriotic American with a rifle would also be “armed,” And, most likely hiding behind the nearest tree, waiting for the first foreign soldier to step foot onto American soil.
Many would counter that these are “modern times.” Indeed, it was also “modern times” on December 7, 1941.
As Mayor Bloomberg and our governor persist at trying to eliminate the Second Amendment, and, our pop machines, Americans only grip their rifles with a much firmer hold.
One has to wonder, If Mrs. Clinton is elected, will she continue to bluntly promote her gun control fantasies, as she did in 1994, as genocide in Rwanda raged on? In that not-so-far-off country, right in her plain sight.
The irony is disconcerting, and her recent quotations only raise eyebrows. Belching out applause eluding statements, such as, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Perhaps, she was referring to the ketchup used in her meatloaf the night before.
“You mark my words. Don’t ever forget them. Someday we will have to fight them, and it will take six years and cost us six million lives. “ (On the inevitable war with Russia.) – Gen. George S. Patton

Approaching a year after the East Troublesome Fire destroyed 366 homes, including 132 belonging to fulltime Grand County residents, there are still a few families that haven’t been able to find stable housing.
