Emotion Evoking Catch Phrases Short on Facts
Letter sent to the Herald
Ralph Surette's anti-gun piece was as long on emotion evoking catch
phrases as it was short on facts. Canadian gun shows he contends, while
offering no evidence, are 'conduits for rogue guns'. But how could he
offer evidence, for there is none. He objects not only to the Conservatives
killing the registry but to their getting rid of the data. He does not
explain how the two differ because they do not, the data was the registry.
He rails against the 'secretive' Firearms Advisory Committee even when
he should know all such government bodies are required to maintain secrecy.
He failed to mention that this same "secretive" Firearms Advisory
Committee under the Liberals was made up of anti-gun individuals. Space
does not permit outlining just how stock full of anti-gun spin doctoring
Mr. Surette’s article was.
