My friend Fred Reichsteller’s letter to the Editor, “Is it enough?” (Thursday, Aug. 8 edition), got me off my “petty potty” long enough to cancel my long-lived membership in the NRA.

I was a faithful member in mind and body for many years. When “Ollie" North was selected as their president, I “re-upped” again only to witness his early departure. His departure along with the NRA’s continuing massive support of automatic weapons was enough for me! I today sent my letter of cancellation to the NRA.

The NRA is very wrong in supporting fully automatic weapons with magazine exceeding six rounds being sold. This organization is now on the wrong side of history and will pay by loss of membership unless there is a change.
