Arguments don’t hold truth to reality of world around us

Letter to the Editor

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what’s for dinner. A Constitutional Republic is a lamb armed with his 2nd Amendment rights contesting the vote.”

Does anyone find it interesting that Joe Tosten [April 4 issue] does not address any of the points raised in my letter to the editor [March 28 issue]. He knowingly ignores the truth and spreads propaganda. (Fake news anyone?)

His arguments just do not hold any truth to the reality of the world around us. Just look at the murder rate in London vs. New York City for February and March of this year. In February: London 15, New York City 14; in March, 22 in London and 21 in New York. In New York there are 4.5 million legally owned guns and just 51 in London! For more information one need look no further than John Lott’s excellent book, More Guns Less Crime.

Mr. Tosten also calls our system of government a democracy; it is not. It is a Constitutional Republic, designed to protect the rights of individuals as endowed by their Creator.
