Firearms License Holders are Not Criminals

Randy Vaughn, of Jonesboro, Georgia, had his short letter to the editor published in today’s AJC, calling Maureen Downey to task for her inapt comparison of Georgia firearms license holders to gang members in a shootout.

Gun in parks: Law-abiding citizens aren’t out to harm others

The editorial “Guns, parks don’t mix”, (@issue Aug. 23) fails to recognize the distinction between law-abiding citizens and criminals. It’s as clear as the difference between law-abiding, legally licensed drivers, and drunken drivers. Perhaps automobiles should be banned from areas where children and families are present.


Thanks, Randy! You can see Maureen Downey’s editorial here.

    Thanks. The article was sooo full of errors and misquotes I couldn’t see trying to address them all. One thing I’ve learned is you can’t have a deep conversation with a shallow mind.

    I wrote too, but there was no chance in Hades of getting that letter to the editor in. I was most sorry about the well-written letter from John Morgan. Media content and language are controlled, the most serious is often the omission of news that people need to hear.

    John Monroe, thinking of Captain Morgan and the drinking song. 🙂
