After reading Pastor Catherine Taylor’s April 16 Pick of the day, “What’s wrong with our priorities,” I have had enough.
Taylor’s comment that gun owners are a bunch of whiners who care only about getting what they want when they want it was both irresponsible and short-sighted.
What I, as a responsible gun owner, care about is not getting what I want when I want it, but keeping the Pastor Taylors of this land from taking my gun and my right to have it. That’s what she really wants.
We have laws prohibiting illegal drugs, but people get what they want when they want it. Taylor should know that she cannot legislate morality.
I would be the first person in line to give up my gun if Taylor could assure me that the evil people of this world couldn’t obtain one either.
Perhaps she should spend more time commenting on the absence of prayer and God’s word in our schools and society and saving souls so that she could really make a difference, rather than bashing responsible gun owners whom she obviously knows nothing about.
