Guns pro­vide safety, I won’t give that up

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

In re­sponse to “US gun laws are ar­chaic at this point” (March 28 Fo­rum):

The Sec­ond Amend­ment was not put in the Bill of Rights to pro­tect the peo­ple’s right to hunt.

It was put there to guar­an­tee the peo­ples’ abil­ity to de­fend them­selves against a govern­ment seek­ing to strip their rights from them and to abuse its power.

The Fo­rum writer is free to sur­ren­der any of his rights he would like to, but I would rather he leave mine alone.

The vi­o­lent crime rate proves we are not a civ­i­lized so­ci­ety. I am glad that the Fo­rum writer feels safe, but I don’t. Nor am I pre­pared to sur­ren­der my safety to a govern­ment that can’t even stop speed­ing.
