Clark Aposhian, chairman of the Utah Shooting Sports Council, is worried that counties will use the wildfire crisis to crack down on firearms ("Don't single us out, say some Utah shooters," Tribune, July 4).
Someone please give Aposhian a cookie and a warm glass of milk and send him to a darkened room to calm down. No one's trying to ban guns, take away guns, ban ammunition or otherwise encroach on folks' sacred-by-gawd rights to shoot at stuff.
What would be nice is if, for the duration of this extremely dangerous fire season, people who target-shoot would go to indoor ranges. That's all. Really.
If Aposhian keeps hyperventilating, he might spark a wildfire all by himself, and that would be awful. Ironic, but awful. Just sayin'.
