Justice should be reserved for court


To the Editor:
I was disappointed with Frank Wessling’s most recent slam of the NRA. As a member I am proud of the lives that have been protected, or saved, and the crimes against innocent people that have not been committed. So many states have now removed some of their impediments to the right of citizens to protect themselves and others. Every state that has done so has experienced less violent crime!
If Trayvon Martin was repeatedly slamming the back of George Zimmerman’s head into a concrete sidewalk, and “Castle Doctrine” was not the law, how would he retreat? On a gurney?
The determination of justice should be reserved for the court, not the biased press, with their never-ending rants for more laws to restrict our citizens’ means to protect life!
