In response to Leonard Pitts column Is America crazy? Yes, about guns (Sept.19): The Second Amendment was written to enable the citizens to resist oppression. It makes no sense to disarm Americans. Citizens armed with slingshots cannot protect themselves against foreign or domestic armed oppressors with automatic weapons.
The question was asked what sort of people are we? We are law-abiding Americans that value our freedoms and are willing to stand and fight if need be against any and all that would disarm us and take our freedoms away!
Its time to grow up and be Americans! There have always been people with problems who harm innocent people. There is a price for freedom, and I am willing to fight for it.
