Utter contempt for victims of gun violence

The comment by the former parole officer from San Francisco at the National Rifle Association convention, referring to the Newtown massacre as “the Connecticut thing,” shows the utter contempt these Second Amendment fanatics have for the grief they are causing the victims of their paranoid obsession over gun rights (“At its convention, NRA warns of a ‘culture war,’ ” Page A2, May 4).

To protect themselves from some imaginary danger that they can’t realistically articulate, they are willing to subject others, and themselves, to a true danger — that of the irreversible destructive power of a gun.
