A suggestion for NRA members

Friday, March 30, 2018|2 a.m.

View more of the Sun’s opinion area

Recently there has been tips drifting around about having retired veterans volunteer to secure schools from shootings. As a retired veteran who served in Vietnam, I have no desire to willingly serve in another war zone. If individuals are trying to find someone to willingly secure their children from being massacred in school, I suggest they aim to the NRA for volunteers. After all, isn’t their slogan “the only thing that will stop an enemy with an attack weapon is a good individual with an attack weapon”? And the NRA has a lot of good individuals with an assault weapon.

It should get horrible boring to constantly shoot an assault weapon at a target or some other inanimate object. Here is a chance for all the potential Rambos to obtain some live action in a shootout with a genuine live bad guy. And similar to real soldiers who served in previous battle zone, they may even get a medal– posthumously.

The NRA is notoriously all talk (and cash) but no action. Now is the time to install or shut up.

“The factor we could not offer more notification was that up until the 11th hour, I did everything I might to raise more money and right the ship.

“After failing to secure more funds, the law needed us to terminate everybody when it ended up being clear to us that we would not have the ability to make the next payroll.

“This also implied that all of our clients right away lost their support.

“The outcome breaks my heart– numerous our people out of work and thousands of people losing a service they liked, and paid for, overnight.

“I can not reveal my deep sadness at pulling down our workers, our clients and our financiers. I’ve checked out notes from people calling me stoic as this … storm has actually hailed down on us. But in truth every time I am alone I cry like somebody whose youngster has actually been ripped from her arms.

“I weep for all the workers we harm. I cry for all the customers we irritated. And I sob for the investors we let down.”
