Your Attention Is Needed Regarding A Column In The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Thursday, August 23, 2007

Dear Pennsylvania NRA Member:

 

            NRA-ILA wants to call to your attention a column that ran in the August 22 edition of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, written by Eric Heyl. In his column entitled “4-day wait may have hunters out of arms” (www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/opinion/columnists/heyl/s_523377.html), Heyl attacks gun owners and hunters on the issue of the impending 4-day shut down of the Pennsylvania background check system. Heyl takes a harshly arrogant and sarcastic tone that clearly shows his disregard for Second Amendment Rights and his disdain for anyone who exercises those rights.

 

Heyl’s arrogance didn’t stop there.  When contacted by an NRA member about his insulting tone, Heyl responded:

 

Yep. We all have our opinions. The difference between us is that I happen to get paid for mine.


Thanks for reading and taking time to share your thoughts.
Regards,

 

Eric Heyl
Columnist
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
(412) 320-7857

 

            NRA-ILA understands the need to maintain and improve the computer system for background checks, but feels strongly that these upgrades can and should be done during off hours and certainly not during the days running up to fall hunting season.

 

            Take a moment to read his insulting column and then contact Heyl (eheyl@tribweb.com) and his editor, Frank Craig (fcraig@tribweb.com) and Managing Editor Robert Fryer (rfryer@tribweb.com) and politely let them know that you believe your rights deserve better than to be ridiculed and dismissed.
