Letters to the AmmoLand Editor: Got something on your mind? Let us know and you can see it here.

Manasquan, NJ - -(AmmoLand.com)- Have a strong feeling about something you read? Write a letter to the editor.

Letters exist to provide a forum for expanded public comment or debate. A letter to the editor is meant to express your opinion or point of view.

Maybe you have a insight into on one of our topics or maybe you want to get the word out about how you like or dislike a particular product, service, organization or public policy.  Let us know.

Guidelines For Letter To The Ammoland Editor:

Be TIMELY: Write your letter within a day of the article’s or event date.

INCLUDE CONTACT INFORMATION: Include your full name, city, state, phone #, email address (we may call you to verify you really wrote the letter – we will not publish anonymous letters).

BE CLEAR: Make one main point.

BE CONCISE: 1- 6 paragraphs, 3-8 sentences, 40-600 words. Short letters show confidence and clarity  in your position.

BE INTERESTING: Get your reader’s attention and keep it to the end of your letter. Open with an interesting fact or strong statement and keep your points as interesting as possible.
