Second Amendment response
To the Editor: Regarding “so much for the 2nd Amendment” in the Feb. 2, 2013 Daily Sun, I strongly support the Second Amendment and every other right I served my country to defend. Whether you exercise your rights or not is on you. These rights were given to us by an extraordinary group of people 234 years ago when everyone had a gun to protect, defend and help feed their families. These individuals knew the rights of this nation and its citizens had to be protected against corruption both outside and within this country. My family came to this country as Quakers with William Penn to exercise their right to worship God freely and build our great nation to the land of the free and home of the brave.
I do not own a semi-automatic weapon. However, have many brothers (who have the right to keep and bear such arms) who I support. Why don’t you check your history and ask the Japanese why they didn’t invade the United States during World War II? They said they knew most Americans were armed and would fight to defend our country.
A country unarmed is at the mercy of outside and inside invaders. Look at Mexico — you can not own guns there. Who runs their country? Drug lords and dealers, gangs and as recently shown a corrupt legal system who held an American hunter (active duty Marine) chained to his bed for weeks, even though he had all the proper paperwork required for his hunt and rifle. He couldn’t even stand up when he was finally released. More people are killed there in a few weeks than are here in a year.
Just remember — when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. That won’t work in this great country of ours. You better believe I will stand and defend our Second Amendment Rights. As a former Marine I took an oath to protect this country and our rights against ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic and as long as I have breath in my body I will. So much for your two deer 40 years ago —
Former Sgt. of Marines,
