Letter: This is not Dodge City
Thank you for your editorial of July 17, “Repeal state’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law.” It is well grounded and thoughtfully expressed. I fear that too many people forget that we do not live in Dodge City and it is now the 21st century. Even Matt Dillon believed in some regulation of guns. Remember: He asked strangers in town to leave their weapons in his office until they were ready to depart from Dodge. Those of us who reject the Wild West as a ethical premise must stand our ground against a gun-slinging mentality.
