This is in response to a letter that you printed in the April 23 Opinion section titled: Ban gun free zones.
The writer’s comments are full of untruths and hateful rhetoric that includes name-calling and inappropriate language that is offensive to some people.
He is perfectly within his right to express his opinions, but untruths and name-calling are not opinions. He uses language like “Leftist Communist Democratic thugs” and the “Muslim Obama regime” — this kind of hateful rhetoric goes against your own protocol as you outline in your “Letters Policy” which states: “The Roundup reserves the right to withhold letters found to be objectionable or otherwise inappropriate. Letters should stick to issues and avoid personal attacks.”
Do you find that the letter you printed meets all of the criteria that you established as appropriate for your readers?
