Gunning for Tomb Raider

Gunning for Tomb Raider

Dear Editor,

In response to "Gunning for Tomb Raider" (Post, Oct 13), I perceive that

the writer wants to deny Cambodians the chance to make money because the film "Tomb

Rader" may have some fake guns in it. How kind of him! It reminds me of the

kindness of the NGOs who [want to] shut down the Nike factory, forcing 3000 workers

to lose their jobs because of one 16-year-old worker.

Freud said that a fear of firearms indicates a fear of sexual inadequacy. Since the

anonymous writer is presumably British, I am not surprised. The problems of my native

Cambodia are caused by a lack of firearms (and the willingness to use them) by your

average law-abiding citizen to fight crime and government oppression.
