LETTER — Public hearing planned for gun manufacturing?

Dear Editor:

Granted, new businesses are welcome in Prince Edward County. However, in a country that already has more guns than people, what is the sense in encouraging the manufacturing of more guns?

Accounting for the political atmosphere in our country today and into the near future, making more weapons seems antithetical to the cause of peace and safety for all.

If you need a gun, there are ample opportunities to purchase some in and around Prince Edward County.

The Prince Edward Planning Commission, at a public hearing on Tuesday, June 16, will receive citizen input regarding a request to add firearm and ammunition manufacturing as an allowable use in the C-1 General Commercial zoning district, at an address of 3194 W. 3rd Street.
