Letter To The Editor: Response To Jody Benson

By ALAN WADLINGER
Los Alamos
 
Some people might raise a minor issue with the editorial of Jody Benson published Sunday, June 26 in the Los Alamos Daily Post.
 
To quote the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights:
 
“Right of people to bear arms not to be infringed. 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.“
 
Some people might feel strongly that the Bill of Rights should be interpreted as for the time period when it was written and not falsely extrapolated to the modern world. In disagreeing with Jody Benson, these people would not have any restrictions on firearms having the following characteristics: muzzle loading, flint lock or fire lock, and using black powder. Some people might agree with Jody that her safety restrictions are reasonable to other types of firearms and might be valid under the Second Amendment.
 
Note, that in my use of the phrase “some people,” none of the above statements can be attributed to me. I hold no responsibility for the stated opinions. I thank Donald Trump for illustrating this technique of denial and without my having to attend Trump University.
