Pamela J. Hall

Pineville

In support of Sheriff Tanner’s remarks

In response to Delores Vaughan, the sheriff’s job is to protect his citizens and the rights he swore under, one of those being the right to bear arms.

You say you see gun control saving someone’s life. I guess once the ban goes into effect (if it does) that criminals and fugitives will suddenly start abiding by the law and respectfully turn in their weapons.

With all the guns out there and a gun ban on the horizon, you truly feel safe? You won’t blow someone away if they’re charging at you in your own home?

You can be free of guns, Delores Vaughan, but don’t come crying to the ones who have full intentions of protecting their home and family after you’ve been victimized by a home invasion or a mugging.
