Letter: ‘When will this craziness end?’

Last modified: 7/13/2015 11:39:10 AM
Why is anyone in this gun-toting society surprised at the events in South Carolina? Was the Second Amendment created by our Founding Fathers to protect crazed, bigoted and mentally defective racists as they leave a gun store, feeling the power of their purchase? Was the Second Amendment meant to protect individuals who take the lives of other individuals purely because they can?

Do those who propose that the Second Amendment trumps the Bill of Rights and the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, really believe that any reasonable ban on handguns violates their right to hunt and protect their homes?

When will this craziness end? When will we at least make a beginning? And to the collective grieving community in South Carolina, do not we all owe a supreme and contrite apology for not having the political courage to stand up to the nut cases and supporters of gun rights, and say “Enough!”
