    NRA greatly exaggerates war on guns

    In “At its convention, NRA warns of a ‘culture war’ ” (Page A2, May 4), a member of the National Rifle Association says, “As soon as the Connecticut thing happened, [President Obama] came after our guns.” Of course, nothing of the sort happened. Asking for background checks at gun shows doesn’t remotely qualify as going after guns.

    We regulate automobiles and their use to a vastly greater degree than we do firearms, but no one has ever accused the government of “coming after our cars.”
