I've been talking to lots of friends, family, and co-workers about this subject. Unfortunately I haven't been as eloquent and concise in my discussions with them regarding gun control legislation. This letter will help me convey the facts more precisely and hopefully help those I talk with to understand that more gun control legislation is not necessarily the key. I will be forwarding this letter to a whole lot of people, as well as using it's points to engage in discussion better. Thank you for writing this and putting it out there, hopefully it gets the attention it deserves!

By the way TS, were you involved in crafting this letter? If so kudos! It is a great piece of work.

Gentlemen: Thank you for the article, but thank you even more for the courage to take an open and public stand, esp. when there may likely be quiet efforts to silence you. It fills my heart with pride to be an American Soldier.

Posted in several places. I am honored to have served with and supported men with this kind of character, dedication, and honor.

Some cogent talking points to add to the gun control conversation arsenal.

A very well thought out voice of reason, thank you!
The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

I'd like to thank you all again for your service and your willingness to stand up for the 2od Amendment. I have forwarded this to a couple of ex-SF guys I know that are not on this site.

I haven't been around this board for some time, but I do want to commend you gentlemen on this letter.

It is one of the more concise and cogent arguments presented, and I appreciate it very much.

I'll look for it on the news in the morning.

Great job.
