Letter: Ban on assault weapons must be reinstated now

Ban on assault weapons must be reinstated now

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 of how the Second Amendment has been misinterpreted and misused for political purposes.

The death toll in all of these shootings certainly could not have been achieved without the use of these military-style weapons. All advocates and politicians who voted to let the law prohibiting these assault weapons expire are complicit and shameful.
