Gun column fuels lawlessness, paranoia


• Tenth: Many right-wing rants eventually come around to the threat of violence against our government and here it is from Mr. Pinkey: “Create a few more stats about gun crimes and you never know, with a little luck, maybe tempers will flare, and there will be real trouble.”

My translation: “If you continue to press for reasonable and sane weapons legislation there will be a violent reaction from gun owners. Don’t forget, Gov. Cuomo, we have the guns and we will use them against those who dare to oppose us!”

Pinkey, this “real trouble” to which you refer might lead to the death of more innocent people. Your irresponsible column only makes matters worse.
