Understand your subject

To the Editor:

I read with interest Mr. Gow’s letter of April 3.

Yes, President Obama took his oath of office to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States. This oath is solemn, and Mr. Gow is proclaiming President Obama is a domestic enemy – treason?

Why is health care (Obamacare) an assault on religious freedom? What does Obamacare have to do with treason? I support Obamacare and everyone forced to purchase health care; it’s essential.

The Second Amendment: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

When this amendment was written, Americans were using muskets and bayonets, not high-powered, automatic weapons and large ammunition clips.

How dare you mention Sandy Hook, where small, innocent children were blown apart and call it “the Democrats liberal bleeding hearts?” My heart was a bleeding heart that day, and those were not my children or distant relatives.

Proclaiming President Obama is a domestic enemy just might land you on the FBI watch list.

The key here is understanding not only the Second Amendment, but what you are writing about.
