NRA’s sway over Congress is a government ill

The National Rifle Association represents everything that is wrong with the federal government today (“The NRA’s true colors,” Editorial, Jan. 17). NRA president David Keene can issue orders to his “army of robot congressmen,” as your editorial put it, because the gun lobby has bought and paid for them. So, instead of doing what’s right, they will do everything they can to block any changes to today’s gun laws.

One can support the Second Amendment while recognizing that there is no need for average citizens to own assault weapons.
