Shreveport Residents React To Ricin-Laced Letter News

Ricin-laced letters were sent to President Barack Obama, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and the Mayors Against Illegal Guns headquarters in Washington.  Those letters were postmarked in Shreveport, Louisiana.  How do Shreveport residents feel about it?

“I think we need to take a more active role because I don’t feel the government is doing what they should be doing,” said Kimberly of Shreveport.  “They need to be more concerned about the people in general, in our country.  Not just themselves or other countries.”

Others questioned the sender’s capacity.

“The person who did this is probably intellectually challenged,” Michael from Shreveport stated to KEEL News.  But these events have brought concern to area residents.

“It’s concerning that people would use this tactic politically at all.” Sean from Bossier City.

“I was just speaking with someone today who is letting her politics determine what kind of coffee she drinks,” shared Jennifer from Shreveport.

But they don’t necessarily disagree with the sender’s belief that we need to protect our Second Amendment rights.

“The 2nd Amendment gives all the rest of the Constitution teeth.” Michael from Shreveport.
