Gun ownership can be hard to justify most of the time
In response to the letter writer who said taking away our gun rights won’t stop shootings and the analogy that auto accidents that kill people won’t stop the government from making cars, there are other purposes of owning an automobile or truck: going to work or on vacation.
What are the purposes of owning a gun: protecting your household? How many times has that been necessary? Other purposes: target shooting, hunting and killing each other.
The government isn’t going to take your guns. But it will make it harder for an unstable person to get one. If you are on the no-fly list, why should you be allowed to have a gun? The NRA is against this notion.
The letter writer said that the last time he read the Constitution he never saw the word “automobile.” Perhaps it could be because there were no automobiles when it was written.
