To: Mark Glaze, Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns
I watched your interview on Hardball with Chris Matthews which aired on August 2, 2013. First, let me commend you for making Chris Matthews the “voice of reason” during that interview. That is no easy feat considering Mr. Matthews’ track record of spouting the absurd. With that said, I wish to get to the main reason for why I’m writing this open letter.
It appears that your organization was misnamed. You’re not against illegal gun owners but legal gun owners. Why else would your organization go on a quest to disarm legal gun owners and claim that we don’t have the right to defend ourselves using Stand Your Ground? I have yet to hear a representative from your organization address the illegal gun trade or condemn our own federal government for its part in Operation Fast & Furious. No, the only thing you concern yourself with right now abolishing Stand Your Ground laws and whether it’s wrong to use a gun in an axe handle fight.
