Letter To The Editor: About Restricting Guns…

Second Amendment


By BOB BOURQUE

This is the only country that has such a gun culture, which is mainly due to the misinterpretation of the Second Amendment.

For example, etched in stone in the lobby of the NRA’s HQ are the words “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”.  Excuse me, but isn’t this blatant cherry picking of the Second Amendment?

If they can cherry pick, so can I. How about: “A well-regulated militia, being necessary for the security of a free state…shall not be infringed.” Or, even simpler: “A well-regulated militia…shall not be infringed.”

Which of these do you think best reflects the thinking of the authors? (Hint: you can pick two out of three).

So, three cheers Madam Governor! You have the cojones that these so-called real men lack. Keep it up! You can do gun safety other ways: There’s no reason you can’t require safety training, licensing, high – really high – taxes on guns. And liability insurance. Don’t quit now!
