Writer confused about concealed carry

Just wanted to clear up a few misunderstandings in the letter to the editor "Carrying a gun is our right" (July 20) by Shannon Thigpen. Regarding the phrase "card-carrying liberals," apparently she is confusing communism with being liberal.

The real danger to this great country is extremism in religion and government. The right to carry a gun has never been in danger of being outlawed, despite what Fox News is telling you.

Also why should I thank a serviceman for a right that this country has had since its inception? If anyone, thank our far-thinking forefathers. Ms. Thigpen should please get out of the 1950s and change the channel.
