(2nd Amendment Issue) AR-15 no Place in Civilian Society

Letters to the editor Daily Breeze. March 4, 2018.

Gun control demands a simple solution for anyone with a heart, a little compassion and most importantly common sense. Ban the war weapon, AR-15. It has no place in a civilian society. It is a weapon of war to be used by the military, not in untrained inexperience civilian population. 

The real purpose of the 2nd Amendment was established to assure that the state armies, the militia, would be maintained for the defense of the state. The actual language of the 2nd Amendment proves to be false against any argument that it was intended to guarantee every citizen the right to any kind of weapon he or she desires.

The gun lobbies interpretation of the 2nd Amendment is nothing but a scam, a fraud, a hoax perpetrated on the American people, for financial gain.
