Government takeover letter comes close, no cigar

LaceyJuly 13, 2013 

Dennis Trester asserts (The Olympian, July 3) that guns are the only way to keep our government in check. Wow, who would have thought? Without guns, he says, even us liberals will be sorry when there is a complete government takeover.

Sorry Charlie, no cigar.

Go tell your theory to the 86,000 people (or family survivors) who are killed or injured by guns each year. Yes, each year. This lifetime liberal embraces our government. I do not waste my time sitting in the shadows of fear with my gun at the ready.
