    Dear Cardinal Dolan, This is in response to a note from you about gun control that was placed on my automobile after I went to Number one you are a Cardinal & you are from New York & i’m sure you don’t know the first thing about guns or using them. I have been hunting with my father since I was about 7 years old & know a fair amout about guns, & I am now 70 years old. I still go hunting about 10 months out of the year. This so called Assult weapon that was used in Conn. was not a assult weapon. It just a semi-automatic rifle that is used around a farm for varmits. They make a semi- automatic rifle that LOOKS like an assult rifle , but, that doesn’t make it an assult rifle rifle. A true assult rifle is FULLY AUTO-MATIC. You just pull the trigger & hold it & the bullets continue to flow out the front of the gun. Thats what they use in WAR. SEMI-AUTOMATICS are NOT used in WAR except for the side arms carried by soldiers iin case thay are in a emergency situation. SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLES shoot ONE bullet for ONE PULL of the trigger. I am retired from the U.S. Army so I know alittle about guns. SO Cardinal Dolan, PULL BACK YOUR HORNS.
