Letters to the Editor

Thriftway’s stand is reasonable and safety-minded

I am sure the writer is a well-trained, careful gun owner. However, every group from stamp collectors to gun owners has its idiot fringe group. Your idiot fringe group makes you look very bad.

I, and I believe a whole lot of my fellow islanders, do not want to grocery shop with a bunch of yahoos with assault rifles slung over their shoulders.

I thank Norm for his stand. It speaks to his desire to keep his customers and staff safe.

— Connie DuFresne
