Letter: At least on this, thanks, HeidiRegarding Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and gun control and mental stability:
Ah, once again we see that choices have consequences. How very interesting in the exchanges regarding firearms in public, their use and misuse, availability and variety, that the discussion turns to mental illness, a culture of violence and recreational mayhem.
Coincidentally, just recently The Forum included another article about the Kirkbride building in Fergus Falls, its probable demolition regardless of its unique architecture. Remember, that building is just one of hundreds across the country vacated of its mental patients when Democrat Jimmy Carter turned them all loose, declaring they and society would both improve when blended. A thoughtful person can see how that’s working, but apparently there’s very little of that in today’s liberal clatter.
So far, on this one topic, I’ll say, “thanks Heidi.”
