I would like to thank the North Coast Journal for responding to the Acrid Commentary letter to the editor (Mailbox, June 2). It is simply appalling that there is an extremely vocal minority of this population that does not believe in actual facts anymore and would rather use alternative facts, i.e. made up total bullshit.
I also want to commend Jennifer Fumiko Cahill for her outrage over gun violence in this country and the inability of Congress to do a damn thing about it. Weapons of war have absolutely no legitimate reason to be sold in this country. The argument that anyone has a "right to bear" these killing machines is ludicrous. They are never used in the hunting of game animals, they are only used to slaughter human beings. No one has that right!
