Letter -- Congress: Not Didier

June 30, 2014 

I am responding to the article about Clint Didier's gun giveaway. Didier for Congress? No!

This idiotic attempt to procure U.S. Rep Doc Hastings' seat in Congress is absurd. A contest to give away two hand guns and a military-style rifle is insane. Neither of these weapons has any other use than to kill people. Nobody hunts with a handgun or assault-style rifle.

Our Second Amendment rights can be defended without the risk of putting even more guns in the hands of someone who is out of balance. This kind of thinking does not belong in Congress. We have enough people who have no business representing us in Congress as it is. Please do not put another in there.
