Treat hunters with respect
Law-abiding gun owners are tired of reading articles from elitist advocates for gun control. The latest example was Dana Milbank’s Sept. 12 Washington Sketch column, “Sportsmen rejoice! Kevlar won’t save those turkeys.”
Mr. Milbank’s column, about pro-sportsmen legislation, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act, was littered with inaccurate terminology to describe even the most basic firearms classifications. His contempt for hunters, National Rifle Association members and gun owners in general was made clear through his condescending tone. The SHARE Act is an important bill that would protect and expand the rights of hunters and sportsmen. Millions of Americans enjoy our hunting heritage, and The Post should treat them with respect, not condescension or condemnation. Chris W.
