To the Editor:
I could not believe my eyes when I read the article in the June 27 KDH, Our Texas, page A5, headlined “Firearms banned at Fourth of July parade.”
Our nation’s freedom was won with muskets and cannons aimed at the British king who tried to subjugate us.
Is this not what we celebrate on Independence Day?
The claim is that a clause in an insurance policy caused event organizers to ban all firearms, even replica muskets carried by Revolutionary Way re-enactors.
After all these years, why now?
This smells of liberal sour grapes enhanced with political correctness to me.
I will find a true Independence Day celebration that has muskets, cannons, and renewed cries for freedom.
