Wrong priorities

Letters
Max


I was looking through a popular American magazine when I came across a cigarette advertisement.

What caught my attention wasn’t the ad itself, but the hypocrisy of the message conveyed by the editors.

This publication, and many others like it, are owned and operated by liberals who, through whatever means possible, and in this case, a magazine, preach to us about the dangers of US citizens legally owning firearms.

It leaves me wondering what liberals truly care about given the fact that gun-related deaths in the US average around 30,000 a year, whereas, cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year, including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from second hand smoke exposure.

If persevering human life is truly their mission, then, based on the numbers alone, may I suggest an advertisement for the gun makers, Smith and Wesson?
