After reading Don Wooten's viewpoint about guns are like ants, I'm convinced he knows nothing about the National Rifle Association or is slanting (lying) his view to make a point. The NRA still is strongly promoting gun safety and hunting. I have read and admired Mr. Wooten's writings for 50 years, but this column didn't help that any.

This is a perfect time to evaluate who's for and who is against guns. The time it should be done is before an election, but it seems like most politicians are like deaf mutes then and won't even mention the word "guns". But now, when they are all shooting their mouths off, is a good time to make a list in preparation for the next election!

It is surprising how many weak and humble souls are coming out of the woodwork, like Augustana College's president denouncing guns and the NRA who know little or nothing about the causes of the matter or don't want to address the true causes. I'll let you know one thing, the NRA isn't done by a long shot.

In parting, I think I'll go out today and buy an ultra-high capacity Glock magazine.
