Gun nuts prone to shooting themselves in the foot

Funny how the gun nuts, in their haste to fill the air with their “guns good” mantras, always shoot themselves in the foot, sometimes in the same sentence.

A Jan. 21 letter writer states that a mentally disturbed person would “think twice” about shooting people if we are all armed to the teeth. It is their mental condition that stops them from thinking twice.

Did John Hinckley think twice about shooting President Ronald Reagan even though he was surrounded by Secret Service agents?

Then a swipe at President Barack Obama for having mandated Secret Service protection for his children. How many of the parents of children at Sandy Hook Elementary School are gun owners? It didn’t seem to protect their children.
