Well I don't like his letter because he's telling her she should come back here to Virginia! No way do the majority of Virginians feel as she does, probably why she left.

Here's why I think the rest of his letter is completely appropriate:

to expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow.
Here she puts herself into a positon of authority, as to what will be allowable, without consideration for the rest of her community. Get off your high horse!

We believed it was a good place to raise children. With the recent and reactive expansion of gun laws and the profoundly serious dangers of fracking, we find we are seriously reconsidering our decision, which is wrenching to all of us. However, the safety of our family must come first.
Here she is quite insulting. She suggests that Wyoming isn't the place to raise children. Based on the position of the majority, it's a bad place. At this point, she deserves what she gets (IMHO).

It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking.
Again, she is insulting and denegrating the position of the lawmakers and voters of her area/state.

IMHO her letter was not polite. The proper response from the lawmaker at that point, considering her contempt for the position of her fellow citizens and by an aggragate response from their elected representative, was to suggest that she GTFO.
Liberty and freedom often offends those who understand neither.
