Believes museum criticism misplaced

A recent letter to the editor criticized Lynden’s museum for saying they would return World War II-era guns to lenders because the museum’s attorney recommended it do so or “challenge” the law. Laws are usually passed in the hope that it will alter or control behavior determined to be unsafe or unacceptable. The success or failure of a law depends, at least in part, on the willingness of the populace to obey the law. A simple fact is that there will always be those who decide a law does not apply to them.
