Statement on NRA was lacking facts

Check out NRA before judging


Re March 11 letter, “NRA just wants to boost sales of guns”: I’m contacting you regarding an erroneous statement printed in The Gazette by Stephen Anderson of Charlton. While in attendance at the NRA annual meeting and convention, attendees may carry firearms in accordance with federal, state and local laws. Only in places prohibited by law, such as areas under control of the U.S. Secret Service are we as attendees disarmed. All firearms exhibited by vendors and manufacturers are proven to be non-functioning before the doors are open to the public. This sensible measure ensures safety in a packed convention hall. I invite all local firearms enthusiasts to attend an NRA convention. We are the most family-friendly, polite, well-mannered group you may ever experience.
