Open Letter from Gun Shop Owner to Wayne LaPierre

Mike Weisser, who owns the Ware Gun Shop in Massachusetts, has written an open letter to the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre:
Dear Wayne:
Sorry I couldn't make it to the annual meeting. I'm a Life Member and I try to get there every year. But this year is different. If I showed up you'd tried to get me to help you fight a "culture war." But if there is a war going on, you represent the wrong side.
I just watched your speech. I think it's time you dropped this nonsense about protecting our "rights." Be honest and tell it like it is. The reason you're opposed to background checks has absolutely nothing to do with the Second Amendment. It's about making it as easy as possible for everyone to own a gun. More guns means more profits for the gun companies, and that's who you really represent.
