Lock-step off-kilter

I read with sadness Ms. Field’s letter (West Hawaii Today, March 28, 2018) referring to the young people who marched for sensible gun laws as “marching in lock-step in group-think about control…” I am 76 years old and my wife is nearly 70; we marched with pride last weekend with the young people. I think marching in lock-step is a good phrase to describe Ms. Field as she parrots the old, tired mantra of the National Rifle Association. She states that “if law-abiding citizens were stripped of guns, who would still have them.” Absolutely no one at the rally was advocating “stripping anyone of their guns.” If she had attended the march she would have known this.
