Gun Owners of America
Dear Mr. Velleco,
I know you've been very busy working on retaining the right to bear arms at presidential appearances, but dammit, there are other gun-related issues that could use a bit of your attention too. People are sustaining serious injuries out there because you and the NRA have failed to address firearms use in our daily lives.
This 66 year-old is an example of one of those people. Here's a guy who's never needed a firearm to shoot scary, brown-looking people in his yard (or maybe he just wasn't trying); his problem was something you've never addressed: tight lug nuts. And he tried to solve it with a shotgun, a weapon that is completely unsuited for tire changing. What he needed was C-4 plastic explosives--there ain't nothing better for turning a stubborn nut. But you haven't raised a finger to make C-4 available to the average gun owner. So he's left with only a shotgun, and now, a leg full of buckshot.
Same goes for this South Carolinian. Rifles are not the proper weapon for shooting dragonflies. He needed a flame-thrower, another class of armament you've failed to secure for the average guy. Flame-throwers are perfect for dragonfly hunting. Their reach is relatively short--so you won't be shooting your neighbors--and the flame spread creates the perfect kill zone for taking on a flying insect. Unfortunately, because of your inaction, Mr. South Carolina, didn't have a flame-thrower, so he used a rifle and accidental shot his friend.
There is no excuse for this. Responsible gun owners, like Mr Lug Nut and Carolina Boy, should find it just as easy to purchase C-4 and flamethrowers as it was for them to buy a shotgun and a rifle.
