It is with sadness that I feel I must respond to Mr. Pawlick’s apology to all of the NRA members, gun owners and law abiding citizens of our United States. I really expected more from a man that is tasked with educating our children at the Los Alamos High School.
It would appear as though Mr. Paveluk’s knowledge of the NRA and what it stands for as well as what it has accomplished since November of 1871 is based on fiction.
He said that “the NRA knows more about education that the rest of us and it’s our patriotic duty to skip to the gun store and buy as many 50-round clips as we can carry.” First, there is no such thing as a “50-round clip.”
Second, and more importantly, I have to agree, based on his ramblings about nuclear weapons and military vehicles armed with machine guns, with his statement that the NRA knows more about education than he does.
When the United States Military has needed firearms training over the past century, they go to the NRA. When federal, state and local law enforcement agencies have a need for specialized training or additional firearms instructors, they go to the NRA for help.
Blaming gun violence on the NRA is like blaming the AAA for drunk drivers. I wonder how many people in the past 120 years have been murdered by an NRA member. Not many would be my guess.
