It's frustrating reading letters-to-the-editor from the pro-gun citizens. These writers seldom bring anything to the perpetual gun debate other than a distorted reverence for the Second Amendment. None of these guys seem to understand that moderation and common sense is not an attack on their gun rights. Trying to reduce gun violence and get certain weapons off the street is not an effort to destroy their beloved amendment. Unfortunately, the NRA rhetoric on this subject serves no purpose other than to fuel the fire, which creates the smoke, which obscures the effort at logic and reason.
