Letter: Limit guns to the military and police officers
We are constantly reading articles about gun control and that guns are a Constitutional right. When the Constitution was written, the United States consisted of 13 colonies along the Atlantic coast. The rest of the continent was wild forest inhabited by Indians and wild animals. Hunting was about the only source of meat. Yes. Hunting was a necessity. We have progressed beyond that stage.
Benjamin Franklin said “There never has been a law written that could not be amended.”
The second clause of the Second Amendment must be revised to limit firearms only to the armed forces and police officers. No one else.
What is more sacred – life or fun?
This is not a request. It is a demand.
