Letter: Disgusted by Shooters story

I was thoroughly disgusted by the front page article in Friday’s paper and your obvious glee at promoting the ideas espoused by a person from Florida, no less, that everyone in Rifle should start bringing guns with them everywhere they go.

Has it really come to this? Our town has had very little violent crime, yet you seem to be calling upon people to abandon their better natures and give in to paranoia.

I have lived in this county for 40 years, and I will not give into such cynicism. I also will never pick up another copy of your inappropriately named Post Independent ever again, free or not.
