The absurdity is profound ("Redneck Revolt," cover story, Sept. 27).

Peaceful protests are for peaceful people. Peaceful people don't carry guns. Peaceful people at peaceful protests don't need guns to protect themselves. They don't need cops to protect themselves.

Cowards carry guns. They do not help anyone. They further the potential for violence.

Peaceful protests are about talking, discussing, promoting, challenging — with WORDS. They are never about guns.

Please understand, and keep your guns at home. We are not afraid.
