Stupid idea of everyone packing a gun is ridiculous

Letter to the Editor

Let’s stop hiding behind the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution. Semi-automatic assault rifles should have been outlawed years ago.

I’m 86 years old and have been hunting since I was 10 without any need for these military type weapons. They are only good for one thing, and that’s killing lots of people in a short time. Any retarded moron, and that includes half of our Congress, knows that without these weapons most of these deaths would be cut by at least 50 percent. It looks to me like they are at least partially guilty in these mass killings. A stroke of the pen by this do-nothing Congress would have saved hundreds of people and would be their largest accomplishment in years.

The stupid idea of everyone packing a gun is ridiculous. There is no way to shoot a killer in a crowd without killing a lot more people. A semiautomatic assault rifle can kill dozens of people in seconds. If you Congressmen haven’t lost any children yet, goody for you, but you won’t get my vote.
