I am sick and tired of seeing your political cartoons and reading your editorial diatribes that attempt to depict the National Rifle Association as being nothing but a group of fanatical boobs who are being manipulated by the firearms manufacturers. Your highly biased staff may find it impossible to comprehend it, but nothing could be further from the truth.
The NRA is a nationwide organization of more than 3.5 million men, women and children from all walks of life who happen to share a common interest in such pastimes as hunting, firearms target shooting competition, firearms collecting, etc.
As a group, our members’ rights and intentions are continually being challenged by the liberal, biased news media, which either through sheer ignorance or in a deliberate attempt to mislead the public, disseminate false, misleading and biased information regarding our organization.
The cartoon published on the Opinion page on Aug. 30 is an abomination, and The Tribune should be ashamed of itself for publishing such tripe.
It is too bad but not surprising that better judgement does not exist among your editorial staff.
