Letter To The Editor
They say guns don’t kill. People Kill. Correct! Well! Sort of! Guns
are designed to kill!
The presence of a gun creates a stimulus incentive!
Many people do not snack between meals. Except, the presence of a
sticky muffin at home or at work cries out “Pick me up! Eat me.
Don’t you want to eat me! Pick me up. Eat me!”
This captures the notion and power of a stimulus incentive... A gun
is a stimulus incentive. A super gun is a super stimulus incentive.
Cool cars are stimulus incentives. “Just touch me. Just get in me.
Just get behind the wheel. Get your hands on it; see how it feels!
Just drive me around the block.”
A velvet martini is also a stimulus incentive. Why not another, and
a third for lunch?
(Of course most stimulus incentives are not specifically designed to
kill people. Guns are designed and manufacture to kill.)
Many people believe that the gun lobby have our congressional
representatives under their financial and electoral thumbs. Do our
representatives mind that this is a moral issue? Seems that getting
elected is a higher priority. Just got to get re-elected!
So, “Just don’t bother me, ‘cause I can’t cope!” I’m
just an ignorant country dad, granddad, great granddad, and uncle to
all the local kids.
