Letter: Dual gun rallies?

When New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, charters a bus emblazoned with the phrase “No More Names” on it and sends it on a 100-day, 25-state tour, how can this be called a “gun rally?” The front page headline in your June 19 edition should have read, “Man subdued, arrested at anti-gun rally.”

I’m a gun owner but am not against background checks, closing the gun show loophole and increased mental health screening for potential gun owners. What I am against is false advertising and yellow journalism.

On a related note, did you know that one of the 6,166 names that are read aloud on the “No More Names” tour is none other than Tamerlan Tsarnaev? Yes, that Tamerlan Tsarnaev! If his name is on the list, doesn’t that call into question the validity of the list itself? How many drug dealers, pimps, murderers and other criminals are on the list? And isn’t their appearance on the list a slap in the face to the real victims of gun violence like the Sandy Hook families?

Dan, accurate reporting on this topic would defeat the agenda of the liberals in charge at the Communist Monitor.

Good letter Dan, the No More Names movement is just political theater designed to pull at the heart strings of the emotional weaklings who are not able to separate emotion from common sense.

Excellent letter Dan. Why does a local citizen have to report news that is not being covered by the Monitor? Why hasn't the Monitor covered the much bigger story that these anti-gun nuts/extremists think that Boston Marathon Bombing Murderer and Radical Islamic Terrorist is a victim?
