With the president

To the Editor:

The Constitution guarantees me the right to defend myself. Yeah, so I want a big assault rifle. I want a rocket launcher in my backyard. I want a fully equipped tank in my front yard.

Are we nuts?

There are laws that supersede my rights, if they have to ensure the safety of others.

I’m with the president.
