Reader's View: Anti-gun lobby financed by billionaires

Is it OK to for the anti-gun lobby to take money from rich people — while criticizing the little people who belong to and support the NRA?

I’m reading letters to the editor in the News Tribune objecting to the National Rifle Association’s participation in the election process. The inference is that the NRA is a rich and powerful “gun lobby.”

Let’s see, the anti-gun lobby accepts money from multibillionaires George Soros, Tom Steyer, and Michael Bloomberg, as well as multimillionaires from Hollywood and across America. I thought Democrats said rich people are mean. Or is it OK to for the anti-gun lobby to take money from rich people — while criticizing the little people who belong to and support the NRA?

The anti-gun lobby is up to a lot of financial mischief, it seems to me and many others, and for the News Tribune to ignore that is unacceptable. No one can argue against fairness — unless it doesn’t suit their mission.
