Get serious on guns; don’t lose more of world’s respect

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

After reading Mr. Liljenquist’s letter comparing President Obama to the most vile leaders of our present memory, apparently because he thinks Obama will take his guns, it surprised me that The Sun News would even print such accusations and comments.

For over 30 years people have been told that the government is going to take your guns, and it has not happened yet. Mr. Liljenquist, you are really embarrassing yourself, the president of the United States and also America. Remember, the world is watching us and respect for the U.S. is already by far the worst it has ever been. Let’s get real, people, and stop these kind of comments. I would suggest you stop listening to Rush and Fox News.
