Letters to the Editor

Remember your history

It seems that a great many people in this country have forgotten their history, or more likely they have never learned it. The Second Amendment is there for a purpose. It is just one element of the Bill of Rights.

These rights make this country different from any other that has existed, or now exists. They are why this republic (not democracy) has existed as long as it has. These same people, although with good intentions, now seem to have but one chant, and that is to call people names and demean them if they want to keep the Bill of Rights intact, instead governing by polls and emotion, which change like drifting sand.

So, if that is the way of our current society, Charles F. Kettering said it best, “You can be sincere and still be stupid.”
