Mary Shaw, gun control & abortion (Letter)
Submitted by: News Director

"IT'S amazing how Mary Shaw (op-ed, Nov. 11) has the gall to show such hypocrisy."

"In one line she indicates she supports abortion rights, but in the very next, she favors gun control, not to mention restricting religion and other things."

"You could argue that, unlike a gun, which might kill, abortion always does kill. Many times more children are killed each year by abortion than by all guns, knives, cars, fists, etc."

"And it would be interesting to see Shaw explain how she can support gun control (supposedly to reduce violence) while at the same time supporting abortion, the ultimate form of violence, a form of execution."

"But the truth is that there aren’t 'good' and 'bad' gun owners– there’s just gun owners. And they don’t 'defend' or 'attack' – they shoot. They kill. That’s why guns are such a problem in this country, because people are taught by the NRA to believe that some guns can do 'good' work, that they can defend families and households. But they don’t. They destroy families. They crush households, and then end lives over and over again, every day of every week."

"Despite massive publicity by the anti-gun campaign prior to Brazil's nationwide vote in late October, voters, while obviously depressed by the frighteningly high murder rates, determined that with police corruption and ineptitude accounting for much of the firearms crime rate, it would be foolhardy to strip law-abiding citizens of the ability to defend themselves. ..."

"The fact that anti-firearms groups were surprised at the results of the vote in Brazil indicates how out of touch they are. ..."

"Common sense prevailed in Brazil. San Francisco is another story."
