Re Jan. 15 letter by Blaine Liljenquist, “Arms needed to protect us from tyranny”

After reading your letter, I am very curious, Mr. Liljenquist. When, then-President Ronald Reagan openly wrote letters to legislators urging a “yes” vote for the 1994 federal Assault Weapons Ban legislation, and when Republicans voted “yes,” did you also categorize them with Hitler, Castro, Stalin and Lenin?

The writer lives in Surfside Beach.
