Re: “Wake Up and Smell the Foul Plot, People.”

Editor, The Times:

Wes, Wes, Wes!

It seems that every time you put pen to paper lately your mind goes blurry.

I wonder if maybe it’s the water down there in Whitepool. As for the foul plot, that’s the result of mixing the Liberals and the NDP and perhaps a sprinkle of the separatist party.

I wouldn’t be concerned if this gun ban were only for military-type assault rifles, but it’s not. This ban includes all firearms with a bore diameter of 20 mm. or greater. That includes cartridges like the 460 Weatherby mag., the 375 Cheytac, and many 12- and 10-gauge shotguns.

The people against this ban are NOT agents for corporate greed as you say, but they are standing up against political dictatorship, also known as “communism.”

In closing, I must add a quote from Wes: “I am a gun owner and a Rod and Gun Club member. I enjoy trapshooting and occasional rifle practice.”

I hope you realize, Wes, that trapshooting is done with a shotgun, not a pen.
