Letter: Collins is doing his best to protect citizens’ rights

Collins is doing his best to protect citizens’ rights

It is good to see that Rep. Chris Collins stands up for our Second Amendment rights. So often now we see people, whom we elect, scurry about trying to deny law-abiding citizens our rights, hoping that some judge will decide that the “shall not be infringed” portion of the Second Amendment means virtually nothing. Our current governor and some of our elected legislators believe that they should decide what our rights are and act as if law-abiding gun owners are criminals before the fact.

If we wish to keep all of our rights, we must remember that our rights, all of them, cannot be compromised. However, we must also remember that those rights can be stolen. That being the case, who is the criminal?
