The world laughs with us

  In his Aug. 6 Editor's Note, John (Mecklin) describes Ray Ring's firearms package as "remarkably even-handed and hope it can provide a starting point ... for discussion. ..." Right. I didn't realize HCN was becoming a humor periodical.

An "even-handed" presentation should characterize Second Amendment supporters as other than quirky Western kooks and addled wingnuts with an extreme cause - and gun control nuts as something beyond reasonable, honest, ordinary people concerned with public safety.

See where I'm coming from? Feel free to try harder.
