Dear Editor: Response to Koopman Op-Ed
March 23, 2022
I recently read Roger Koopman’s Op-Ed in the Whitehall Ledge entitled “Freedom’s Best Friend: Armed Citizens”. I agree with what I perceive to be Mr. Koopmans main premise. That is, the second amendment is a free citizen’s last resort when dialog fails with an overreaching government. A government that has evolved from a democracy to an autocracy. However, in my opinion, Mr. Koopman’s long-winded reasoning may be a somewhat misleading convoluted smoke screen in order to cover up extremist attempts to undermine Democracy, and our way of life in Montana.
