Letter to the editor: Why raffle a gun?

To the editor: One of my first and favorite memories about moving from Colorado to the gorge in the past year, was going to several Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts shows, especially in some of the beautiful parks in the area. I was excited to go again on October 17th to support the National Guard. It wasn’t until I read about one of the raffle prizes that I stopped all thoughts of attending, and I doubt I am the only one that feels this way. With the feelings of Roseburg still fresh in our minds, and for me living only miles from both Aurora, Colo., and Columbine High School, all I can say is “what are you thinking?”
