Regarding the Feb. 22 front-page article “Going against the gun culture”:

Susan Beehler is not alone in North Dakota. I and many of my friends, most of us hunters or gun owners, support responsible gun ownership and common-sense regulation. I have contacted both my senators and my congressman regarding this issue and will do so again.

At this point, most of us are so tired of the partisan do-nothingness of Congress that enacting just one little part of any bill would be delightful. How about background checks?

Susan Beehler and other like-minded people have plenty of support. We’ve just been a little too quiet about it.
