Letters to the Editor

Twisted concept

I always choke up when I see a letter by David Perkins, who has a twistedconcept of our Constitution.

In his Nov. 13 letter, “Intimidation politics,” he tried to take the side of an anti-gun group by deriding those in support of the Second Amendment who demonstrated some distance outside the gun-control group’s meeting by legally carrying their firearms.

Perkins neither understands our representative political process, which has kept Texas one of the freest and most productive states, nor the stark difference between his fearful citing of the Ku Klux Klan and those who publicly show support for their constitutional rights.

It appears obvious that Perkins would advance the rights of some citizens at the direct loss of the rights of others.
