Editorial cartoon in poor taste

Dear Editor,

Your May 1 cartoon regarding the NRA and Germany was in extremely poor taste. To imply that the NRA loves or advocates gun violence is ludicrous. The NRA has always advocated strong punishment for gun crimes and strict enforcement of criminal laws.

It is interesting to note that Germany, France, England and other European countries have gun laws that gun-control advocates want the United States to adopt. Since these gun laws were passed, there has been an increase in violent crime in many of these countries.

It important for people to see both sides of an issue, and we expect the media to be a resource for information. Unfortunately a one-sided approach to reporting is what I have come to expect from the Post Independent.
