Letter: Shame on state

October 6, 2013


To the editor:

My God, it is unbelievable that David Guth’s career should be in jeopardy because of something he said, or tweeted. Only a dummy or troublemaker would think that he would like to see the children of NRA members shot.

He only wants the NRA to be accountable for their continual support of NO gun control. The NRA is the most powerful and controlling organization in this country — much more so than our Republican and Democratic legislators.

The killings continue. Now EVERYONE is responsible. We should all be able to recognize and do something about mental illness. Everyone has a family member or knows someone with a mental illness. What are we to do about it?

Bottom line: Sane or insane people cannot kill others, unless they have access to guns.

I do not know David Guth. Maybe I would like him, maybe not. Maybe I agree with his statement, maybe not. I do think, however, that he has a right to speak without being put on administrative leave. What he says or does has no reflection on me. We are responsible for our own actions; no one else’s.

How the state of Kansas has treated Guth is an embarrassment for all Kansans. His treatment by the state is much worse than anything he could have said.

Good luck to David Guth. I hope he isn’t drained financially fighting a disciplinary action against his civil rights. If it goes to court, I hope he will be proactive and settle for a large chunk of change.

Wonderful advice Ms Schoning.

I do not remember your concern for Sarah Palin though. Do you have it handy somewhere so I could read it? I appreciate all you can do in this devastating treatment of Mr. Guth.

But critics of Sarah Palin have already drawn a link between the shooting and the fact that the former Alaska governor put Giffords on a "target list" of lawmakers Palin wanted to see unseated in the midterm elections

In March, Palin released a map featuring 20 House Democrats that used crosshairs images to show their districts. (You can see it here.) Critics suggested at the time that she was inciting violence by using the crosshairs imagery and for later writing on Twitter to her supporters, "'Don't Retreat, Instead - RELOAD!'"

What's that smell? Oh, it's that red herring that's been dragged across the path.
