In response to the letter “Constitution spells out who can bear arms” (Letters, June 13): The writer of the letter asserts that “widespread access of firearms” is a direct violation of the Second Amendment of the Constitution. The writer further states that the Second Amendment “makes it clear that bearing arms is the right of ‘a well regulated militia.’” The writer could not be more wrong. The Constitution as ratified by the states reads, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
