Fat Cats-What? And Why?

I have read, then studied, Frank Miniter's
fine article in the December 
issue, "Since When Does Being Rich
Make You Right?" (p. ) in an effort
to understand why. Why do the likes
of George Soros, Warren Buffett and
Bill Gates campaign against the rights
of law-abiding .. citizens to possess
firearms? What drives and motivates
each of them in that effort? I feel other
 members would also appreciate
an America's st Freedom report to help
grasp why these otherwise intelligent,
financially successful people are so bent.
Cecil G. Ingram
Bandera, Texas (Many decades
member of the  and )
Your recent article naming the wealthy
who support the gun control groups
was enlightening, but still left me with
a question that has always puzzled me.
What are their true motives? Surely they
are aware that throughout history the
primary objective of every tyrannical
and dictatorial government has been
to disarm the citizenry. What, then,
is their ultimate goal? Has anyone
actually posed that question to Michael
Bloomberg and his ilk? What would
be their answer? Is it their desire to
become members of an elite ruling
class that would have total control over
a disarmed and submissive populace?
If indeed that is their goal, that puts
them in a class with the many tyrants
throughout history (Hitler and Stalin
stand out), and it is all the more
reason for the gun owners of America
to support the ; the politicians,
locally and nationally; and all other
gun rights advocates and organizations
that fight for our Second Amendment
rights. If they claim that is not their
goal-that their goal is strictly to create
a safer environment for the American

people-then they must be lying,
because statistics overwhelmingly show
that a populace consisting of law-abiding
armed citizens who are unhampered by
restrictive legislation is much safer than
one where only the criminals are armed.
A look at the crime statistics in the areas
of our nation and other countries where
laws are more restrictive is proof enough.

What Kind Of Car Do You Drive, Tom?

After reading Mark Chesnut's piece on
Tom Brokaw (America's st Freedom,
January , Editor's Letter, p. ), I got
to thinking. Mr. Brokaw, like many of
those in the media, thinks he knows
what's best for all of us. Mr. Brokaw says
he is an owner of quite a few firearms
but seems to think there is no place in
society for semi-automatic firearms. I
have to wonder what type of vehicle Mr.
Brokaw drives. I'm sure he has probably
purchased his share of above-average
vehicles. I have to question why he
wouldn't be perfectly happy with a lesser
vehicle. This analogy outlines the fact
that we are free to purchase whatever
legal merchandise we wish, no matter
that it may not coincide with what others
think we should buy. The same applies
with semi-automatic firearms.

Washington State Voters
Deserve Bullitzer

In your December  st Freedom,
you forgot to mention who was awarded
the Bullitzer Prize. The rest of magazine,
as usual, was great. In my opinion, if I
were to award the Bullitzer to anyone, I
would probably choose the Washington
state voters.

Better Bachelor Party

Recently I had the honor of using the
 Headquarters shooting range in
Virginia. For my son Michael's wedding,
we decided to have his bachelor party at
the gun range instead of the usual strip
clubs others use. On December , we went
to the range and had a great time. The
staff was very courteous and made the
day wonderful for us. It's a day we will
always remember. Thanks again, .

Donate Magazines To The Troops

Just adding my  cents to the discussion
on donating my st Freedom magazine.
After reading my copy of the st Freedom
(and others), I bring them to my local
 Post and put them in the box for
donations to the troops in the field. I also
solicit friends and doctors for their old
magazines, which I also donate. And I
ask every man and woman who reads
this note to do the same. I remind people
to please not forget that we have women
in the service also, so just about any
magazine would be appreciated.

More Kudos For Khanna

Vik Khanna's "Parting Shot" in the
December st Freedom (p. ) should
be required reading for every elected
person from the White House to the
local school boards.

Correction

In a photograph in
the February  issue ("Great
American Outdoor Show "
p. ), Brantley Gilbert was
misidentified as Lee Brice. We
apologize for the error. -Editors
