Letter to the editor: I won't give up guns

Thursday, December 26, 2013 - 12:01 am

When I joined the Navy, I was sworn to protect the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic. Therefore, any attacks on the Constitution, especially the Second Amendment, by some supposedly do-gooders who think they are better educated or know what is better for me is in for the fight of their lives.

When you get people like the “Fascist gun control nuts and the Second amendment bashers” who dispute that gun control laws are unconstitutional, they have a major fight on their hands.

What these people cannot seem to get through their thick skulls is that the law-abiding citizens are not the problem and they cannot control the criminal elements.

The law-abiding people of this country will only give up their guns when they pry them from our cold, dead hands.
