Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

I’m replying to David Brooks’ letter of April 19, “Gun rights exaggeration.”

His first sentence goes on for 44 words. The rest of his letter, as Rush Limbaugh would say, “is anti-Second Amendment propaganda.”

Lest you forget, “Twas April 18, of ’75, hardly a man is still alive, so listen my children, and you shall hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere ...”

On the following day, April 19, 1775, the shots heard around the world were fired at Lexington and Concord. It was there that the English tried to confiscate the Americans’ guns. Thank God for the wisdom or our founding fathers establishing the Second Amendment.

Any questions? Read “The Federalist.”

Doing the same test repeatedly and expecting a different result is insanity. England, Canada and Australia were promised by their politicians, “no gun confiscation.” The politicians lied; they confiscated.

Mr. Brooks’ last paragraph states, “confiscation is nothing more than exaggeration and fear-mongering by those with an agenda to subvert the truth or a severe case of paranoia.”
I don’t believe that. Democrats, President Barack Obama, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Dick Durbin, Sen. Charles Schumer and Sen. Harry Reid want to outlaw AR15s and large capacity magazines and confiscate those already owned.
