LEGG: Gun-Control Advocates Equal Hitler – Really?
LETTER from HAL LEGG

Gun-Control Advocates

Equal Hitler – Really?

To the Editor:

This news organization recently published a letter in which Otsego County Rep. Rick Brockway, R-Laurens, presented his opinion – certainly worthy of your readers’ consideration – about the general availability of firearms. In contrasting his perspective with that held by Democrats running for president, Representative Brockway wrote: “Adolf Hitler said, ‘To conquer a nation, you first must disarm its people.’”

History rules out the acceptability of lightly characterizing others as der Führer. Casually invoking him as a rhetorical device designed to negate an opposing viewpoint trivializes the suffering of the millions whom Nazis imprisoned, enslaved and murdered.
It also diminishes the shared sacrifices that thousands of Americans and others of several nationalities and political beliefs, at home and abroad, in an out of uniform, selflessly made to end the Third Reich, liberate a continent and, in doing so, become the Greatest Generation.

Hitler brutally perpetrated the most vile atrocity of the last century. Contemporary Democrat presidential candidates, on the other hand,
suggest that the abundance of guns in our country is having ill effects. These two are not equivalent.
Attempting to draw similarities between them is grotesque.

Strategic Planning Getting Underway At SUNY Oneonta

Strategic Planning

Getting Underway

At SUNY Oneonta

President Morris

ONEONTA – SUNY Oneonta’s new 13-word mission statement, released Tuesday, is almost immediately being followed by a process to create a new five-year strategic plan for the college by January, according to President Barbara Jean Morris’ spokesman, Hal Legg.

With this Saturday’s commencement behind her, the president will convene a meeting of her cabinet May 23 in the campus Welcome Center to talk through the planning process, which “should, in a broad sense, tie back to the mission,” said Legg, director of communications & marketing.  “We’re not wasting any time.”

While Legg arrived after former President Nancy Kleniewski’s first five-year plan was adopted in 2010, he was involved in its implementation, and in the three-year update initiated in 2015.
