Letter: Guns

February 18, 2014 

I went shopping for a fantasy baseball magazine in Boise recently. The store I visited was lacking any main sport publications, but it did have an abundance of “Guns and Ammo” type magazines on display — titles like Recoil, Combat Handguns, Tactical Weapons, and Personal & Home Defense. Frankly, this genre of content is another form of pornography. Only one in 10 high school freshmen in Idaho will go on to graduate from college. And the other nine? I certainly wouldn’t want to confront them.
