I just have to praise Carin Gordon. She is the person who wrote the letter titled, “Gun anarchy has arrived” (July 28th).
I have composed many letters in my mind regarding guns, but this letter said exactly what I tried to say.
The NRA has glorified guns to the point that every nut-job in the country thinks he/she has a perfect right to own any weapon, including an AK-47 assault rifle!
The Second Amendment says the country has the right to “a well-regulated militia” (Webster’s meaning of that word is ... “an organization for emergency service”) and that certainly does not mean arming a volunteer block-watch-wannabe cop to gun down an innocent kid minding his own business.
We are teaching our young people that violence, sex and profanity are perfectly fine in any circumstance without restraint. There have been countless instances of gun violence right here in our own backyards — is that right?
