Con­fis­cat­ing 300 mil­lion guns

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “A gun’s pur­pose,” let­ters, Oct. 12

One let­ter writer sug­gests not only re­peal­ing the 2nd Amend­ment, but also mak­ing gun own­er­ship with­out a spe­cial per­mit a crime and hir­ing fed­eral em­ploy­ees to con­fis­cate the more than 300 mil­lion firearms in cir­cu­la­tion na­tion­ally.

This ab­surd idea is just too out­ra­geous to imag­ine. Is the let­ter writer plan­ning to ap­ply for one of th­ese jobs as a gun con­fis­ca­tor for the fed­eral govern­ment? Teri Felker

Now that Hil­lary Clin­ton is giv­ing Har­vey We­in­stein’s con­tri­bu­tions to char­ity af­ter sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tions against him were re­ported, Repub­li­cans in Con­gress (and some Democrats) should do­nate the money given to them by the Na­tional Ri­fle Assn. to the vic­tims of gun vi­o­lence.
