Radical socialistic views

By Chris J. Herby

Editor Sitnews,

I like to read letters on SitNews but it is quite rare that I feel compelled to write one myself as I do now. I want to give a sincere thank-you to both Douglas and James Thompson for the direct and well written letters they wrote in response to the rambling, offensive, and factless letter about guns by David Hanger.

When I read Hanger's letter all I could think was "my gosh, this idiot tries to do people's taxes"! My other thought was it's Hanger's type of backwards socialistic thinking that has led to many of the problems in the USA today as well as most likely helping to put our present useless administration in the Whitehouse. I could go on and on for quite some time I'm sure, but I wouldn't want to ramble for a couple thousand words of nonsense like David Hanger.

In a nutshell I just want to once again thank the Thompsons for their well written letters and everyone else who believes in our rights and our constitution that protects those rights.

I respect people that aren't afraid to openly call BS on the David Hangers in this world. I think possibly Hanger and other like minded individuals should consider relocating to a country that doesn't have a constitution that gives their citizens the right to own guns and also where such radical socialistic views are more accepted.
