Editor, Ceres Courier,
With all this noise going on about gun control, I took some time off from my busy schedule of doing nothing to look into this topic. It may take more than one sitting here, but I will make sure what I find is as factual as can be.
In 1865, a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.
In 1881, a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States - who later died from the wound.
In 1963, a radical left-wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.
In 1975, a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.
In 1983, a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, president of the United States.
In 1984, James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonald restaurant near San Diego.
In 1986, Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.
In 1990, James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.
In 1991,George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby's cafeteria in Killeen, TX.
In 1995, James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.
In 1999, Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.
In 2001, a left-wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, president of the US.
In 2003, Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.
In 2007, a registered Democrat named Seung - Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.
In 2010, a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed six others.
In 2011, a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
In 2012, Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.
In 2013, a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school in Newtown,CT.
As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy shipyard.
Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.
Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders.
The solution: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.
We don't need gun control, we need Democrat control.
Guns don't kill people, Democrats do!
