To the editor:

Why do we always want to take the guns away from the law abiding
If the persons who want guns taken away from the law abiding citizens,
why don't they get together and start taking the guns from all the criminals, drug addicts, felons?
Can you imagine taking the guns from the good guys and not the bad ones? What are you thinking? The Second Amendment came about so the people could defend themselves against a tyrannical government. How many of you would like to fight criminals with a BB gun when the enemy have the automatic weapons?
The law abiding citizens are not the problem. Maybe we could pay a bounty for every gun you take away from the bad guys. Try it. I dare you.
