Right to own gun is outdated, dangerous
To the editor:
In light of the horrific tragedy in Connecticut, our course of action is clear. The Second Amendment must be repealed. There is no constitutional right to own a car, or a dishwasher, or a cat, so why do we need the right to own a gun?
As long as the National Rifle Association pays lobbyists to clamor for the right to own a firearm — any firearm — all efforts to curb this kind of bloodshed will be stymied.
It is time the Second Amendment went the way of the dinosaurs. How many innocent men, women and children need to die before we realize that the right to own a gun is outdated, outmoded and dangerous?
