Parenting, guns

TO THE EDITOR: Mr. Brohinsky’s letter is proof again that progressive liberal New Deal socialist Democrats want more laws, more control and hide behind children to obtain it.

You made several mistakes. First, Wikipedia — about as reliable source a as anything broadcasting on NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC or CNN who actually has a show called “reliable sources.”

Second, you didn’t use Wikipedia for the definiton of trespassing. The reasons you gave about the landowner being responsible for the child brought me to tears but made me think of ambulance-chasing trial lawyers looking to make 65 percent of your winnings because you couldn’t keep your dog on a leash, off my property and away from my guns. We got to do it for the children.

Sometimes the children are the problem. Bad parenting. Progressive solution? Throw a untested pill at them, then blame their crack habit on society because spanking is abuse.

Democratic solutions aren’t helping. They’re making things worse. It’s not up to me to clean my yard or lock up my guns. It’s up to you to find out where your kids are. It’s called parenting.

Democrats and their Hillary-worshipping followers need to understand it doesn’t take a village to raise a child. It takes a parent to know where it is and the village to mind its own business.

Maybe if they taught English language as a requirement for graduation, they could read the sign: No trespassing.

The problem with Progressives is they tell us we need tougher laws to stop gun violence but then don’t enforce them. Legal gun buyers don’t buy their guns out of trunks of cars in dark alleys.

Enforce the ones we have, and toughen the punishment.
