Lately, the editorial cartoons depicting the National Rifle Association in a negative way are really just outright lies. Everyone knows that you despise the NRA, but at least if you are going to print something, try printing the truth.

The cartoon March 27 insinuating that the NRA has bought America like that village idiot [New York Mayor Michael] Bloomberg is wrong. The NRA has almost five million members who paid money to belong to an organization that believes like they do. Bloomberg has to pay people to agree with his views. And I doubt there are 500 people who agree with him on any subject.

The one that had the Grim Reaper with an NRA button on his chest, implying that the NRA was responsible for the death of schoolchildren, was also offensive. You are so interested in tarnishing the reputation of a group that has tried to protect part of the Constitution of the United States of America and connect the NRA to any mass murder. You might be able to pull it off.

The pen has killed far more than any gun, including an AR-15. Try treating the Second Amendment like you do the First.
