Letter to the Editor

I did it again:

I think it's time to talk frankly.

The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States says nothing about hunting, sport shooting, or "enjoyment". It says nothing about the National Guard. It says nothing about muskets and flintlocks. The word used is "arms". Modern military arms such as those used to fight the American Revolution, or to defend the Alamo. Arms such as those used in the Battle of Athens, Tennessee

It is there to provide the people of the a means to prevent tyranny from our own government, or from an outside force. It is there to ensure that all citizens have access to modern weapons of defense.

There is nothing in the Second Amendment that mentions limits on weapon features, or suitability for any purpose other than defense against aggression.

Any politician suggesting "gun control" is either stupid, naive, or ignorant of history. Every instance of genocide in the 20th century was preceded by "common sense gun control".

Read history, and understand why free people need unfettered access to the tools of freedom. Understand that laws are only obeyed by the law-abiding, and that attacks by criminals and madmen can never be prevented by any law.
