If opposed, don't go to gun show

I am writing in response to a recent “Our View” that appeared in the Observer-Dispatch regarding the gun show in Kirkland.

If I understood it correctly, you oppose it due to the organizer’s opinion on certain politically sensitive issues. Now, in full transparency, I am a conservative, gun-owning NRA member and I believe the show should be held.

So just to clarify, you say in your final paragraph that you agree with his right to free speech and his right to hold a legal business enterprise, correct? Then you don’t want him to have a gun show because you don’t like him? Maybe you should go to the library and get rid of books you don’t like. Imagine someone being denied entry to a certain bathroom or the ability to purchase a wedding cake because someone didn’t like what they represented. Deplorable! Are these Kirkland values?

Here is an idea, if you oppose it, don’t go. Let the attendees spend their money in town and use the funds to build a wall. Perhaps a North and South Kirkland?
