Mark Hatcher: Backward cartoon by Dwane Powell

I’m not a real big fan of the NRA with its “an assault rifle in every hand” philosophy and its pushing for open carry laws. Nor am I a fan of The N&O’s bias on just about everything that has to do with politics.

The N&O editorial staff occasionally shoots itself in the foot in its attempt to paint anything to do with Republicans in a negative light. Dwane Powell’s Sept. 28 editorial cartoon was a prime example. But it could only be done that way figuratively and not literally by the gun that the NRA figure is holding, because the rounds in the belt feeding the gun are being placed in backward!

You and Powell keep up the good work as I need a good laugh occasionally when reading the Editorial page.
