Letter to the Editor: Our rights have been eroded
The reality is all of our rights have been eroded, and once universal background checks are in place and another criminal commits a horrific act, then there will be another reason to push for more regulations. The left is never quite satisfied with the anti-gun laws they currently have. They always want more, with the end game of leaving the law abiding defenseless against an increasingly tyrannical government and the criminal class.
This is all about control. Will they be satisfied with just getting rid of the Second Amendment? Not likely. The First will be next, but only for those who disagree with the government. What is left of the Bill of Rights will be crushed. Our founders knew this, which is why they protected our right to bear arms.
The gun is merely the tool that the human selected, just like the knife the attacker in Houston and the hijackers on 9/11 used. Getting rid of guns only hurts the law abiding and never the criminal. Wake up America, the carpet of our Bill of Rights is being pulled right from under our feet while we worry about whether it is in "good taste" to give away an AR-15!
