Americans have been ill served by the NRA's bullying tactics

Your editorial "Tyranny of the minority" (April 19) provided a clear and convincing picture of how poorly Americans have been served by a minority in Congress that has been bullied by the NRA.

Most Americans realize that a sophisticated, well educated society needs to move beyond a vigilante, cowboy-like environment. They also understand that we are a diverse society that guarantees individuals the right to own a gun to protect their home, to hunt or to engage in sporting activities.

Your editorial clearly laid out the issues, including the idea that members of Congress who responded to the NRA money and mis-information rather than the majority of Americans should not remain in office.
