LTE: I Guess You Follow the Money
I find it very interesting that our newly-elected State Rep. Tommy Sankey stood on our capitol’s steps and expressed, “If they want our guns, come and try to get them, because it’s not going to happen.”
I totally agree with his statement. I have purchased guns at Bob’s Army & Navy and Grice Gun Shop. They will never be removed from my home.
However, I don’t understand why Mr. Sankey wasn’t able to show up for a very important meeting with the state’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for the proposed Boggs Township Landfill. When campaigning he had expressed he was against it.
This is very important to the people of his district who elected him. I guess we have to follow the money. And, by the way, I left the NRA more than 25 years ago when they started supporting assault weapons for whoever had money to buy them. I guess you follow the money.
Common sense tells me that weapons don’t belong in the hands of everyone. Without knowing where they are and checking the history of people who are buying them, it’s a danger to everyone, regardless of where they are being purchased.
Thank goodness for the Second Amendment that’s to keep politicians in their place.
