Cartoon wrongly disparages NRA
It was very disturbing to me, an NRA member, to see the Mike Luckovich cartoon of Oct. 26 in my local paper, the Toledo Blade. The depiction of a Darth Vader with an NRA logo on his outfit, wielding a sword of gun violence, is flat-out wrong. Members and officers of the NRA grieve for the families, and the rest of the nation, over senseless gun violence that takes the lives of innocent people. For Mr. Luckovich to imply that the NRA supports gun violence is just not right. The NRA is the only organization that promotes safety and training for anyone that wants it. Seminars for police, regular folks and children have been recognized around the nation for teaching gun safety. Mr. Luckovich should at least become familiar with someone before he paints them in a disparaging light.
