Mike Flannery: Rummel is mistaken


I read with fascination the stories about Mr. Rummel and what he and some of his peers are proposing. It seems to me that he is asking just the opposite of what gun control advocates are asking for. I would not expect a whole community to conform to my beliefs or values. I am not an advocate of gun control, but I do think that two wrongs seldom make a right.

As far as economics, why aren’t we asking why the land out by Walmart is going undeveloped? Why aren’t we offering some kind of incentives to try to attract a business here? Hunting is very important to our economy in Craig. If someone chooses to not come and hunt here as a protest, it seems that I might have a better chance of getting the hunting license I am trying to draw.

I still amazed at what people think is important, like “the killer deer of Craig” and forcing someone to own a gun. This is America, and we all have a right to an opinion.

Mike thats right we do have a opinion and our government took it from us when they voted these new laws in if they would have thought for one minute that we really wanted this they would have let the people vote for it Rummle is just standing up to what he believes like alot of other people do just like the sheriff and their lawsuit

It is absolutely crazy to pass a City ordinance requiring people to have a large capacity magazine and a hunting rifle. Oh, unless you don't want to, then that's okay. Why pass a law that you don't have to obey? Oh, right, we did pass a state law that the sheriff doesn't think he has to obey.
