TRUST GUNS TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE
I realize this will never make it into the paper, since the Star Tribune is so anti-gun, but I will have felt better for speaking my mind. It’s just too bad that Delbert Belton — the 88-year-old World War II veteran who was recently robbed and beaten to death by two punks in Washington state — wasn’t packing a concealed-carry weapon. There is a fair chance he would still be alive today, and maybe one or both those cowards would be in hell instead.
