Letter: Forefathers knew nothing about assault weapons

Forefathers knew nothing about assault weapons

The Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution had no concept of today’s weaponry and today’s society, for that matter. I don’t think they would approve how the Second Amendment has been misinterpreted and misused for political purposes. The death toll in all these shootings certainly couldn’t have been achieved without the use of these military weapons. All advocates and politicians who voted to let the law prohibiting these assault weapons expire are complicit and shameful.
