A letter from about a week ago. The Boregonian only publishes about 6-8 letters per week, because they are a minimalist cage-liner these days. This letter likely will not make it into print.
Our ruling elites have, in their infinite wisdom, accepted the public risks associated with granting legality to another intoxicating substance, cannabis, and they say they did this out of an abundance of concern for progress in individual liberty.
Why do these same ruling elites then turn around and force onerous restrictions on another public risk, that of keeping and bearing firearms, the risks of which are already accepted by being firmly enshrined in our Bill of Rights?
I must have skipped the section in our Constitution which permits our elites the use of illogic, hypocrisy AND the denial of civil rights.
