Gun rights activist praises C-O for balanced coverage


To The Editor:

In the last month I have written no less than three letters to a website known as North Country Now. These letters were rebuttal to letters written in support of the SAFE Act. I do my very best to be neither personal or make direct attacks on the person to whom the letter is intended. None of my letters were loaded onto the NCN site.

I can think only that the administrators of NCN don’t really want both sides of the story, and are in support of or leaders in Albany passing legislation in the dark of night to infringe on our 2nd amendment, the SAFE Act.

One fellow wrote that he purchased an AK-47 with two 30 round clips and 800 rounds of ammunition, and praising the Massena VillageBoard with standing against repeal of the Act. While I can respect this fellow’s opinion, why would NCN refuse to print my rebuttal, are they that against the 2nd amendment that they would also refuse my 1st? Or is NCN just a one sided media outlet.

I would like to thank the Courier-Observer for being a much more open minded outlet for the people and printing both sides when called upon. I would also like to thank reporter Benny Fairchild for the story on June 5 concerning the upcoming village meeting, I think he did a great job of being fair and balanced, hitting marks on both sides of the story.

As to the man who bought the AK, I hope you got rid of those 30 round clips and have plans to register that rifle or you very well could be charged with multiple felonies.

Thanks again to the Courier-Observer and Mr. Fairchild.

Will Gray
