Letter to the editor

To the Editor:

On the letter from Robert K. Stock:

In the October term 2007, the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the case of “District of Columbia et al. vs. Heller,” held that “The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditional lawful purposes, such as, but not limited to, self-defense within the home.”

So keep your hands off my Second Amendment rights!

Earl Adams, El Reno

    Mr.Adams:

    In my letter I stated that a pistol, shotgun, or hunting rifle is all that one needs to protect one’s family or property. So I am not argueing that individuals should not own firearms.

    I am argueing that in line with the Supreme Court’s 1934 decision that banned private ownership of machine guns, sawed off shotguns, silencers, and flash-suppressors, it would not violate the Second Amendment to ban private ownership of semi-automatic weapons or restict the number of rounds in a magazine.

    I am also stating my opinion that the Supreme Court erred in it’s 2007 Heller decision by stating that membership in the Militia is unconnected with private gun ownership.
