Letter: Tyrants confiscate guns to control

This gun control issue is not in line with the Constitution. The reason the Second Amendment was placed in the Bill of Rights was to protect the citizens from tyranny of government. Guns are not the issue. They are inanimate objects. Use one wrongly and it can kill. Use a knife wrongly and it can kill. Use a car wrongly and it can kill.

Tyrants confiscate guns to control the people. We see this throughout history. It’s a step to gain absolute control and dominate the masses. Again, I emphasize that “the right to bear arms” was purposely put in the Bill of Rights to protect the citizens from tyranny and oppressive government.

Gun control will be pursued. It will be incremental. They will start with assault weapons, and they’ll gradually proceed from there. Eventually, they’ll want to confiscate them all. This is part of their objective, and they’ll try to do this in a manipulative and sly approach, like they’ve done many issues before while incrementally taking away your rights. The Constitution is being trashed before your eyes.

President Obama is now using “executive orders” against gun control. Who needs Congress? This is becoming such a charade. Where are the checks and balances? A king makes decisions without checks and balances, but our government is not supposed to function this way.

If gun control is fully implemented as law, then America, you are no longer America. The Founding Fathers had it right when they added the Bill of Rights to the Constitution.

  • Viewpoint: Veterans' stories of patriotism, loyalty are uplifting As a professor at Ivy Tech Community College, I continually see very diverse backgrounds of our students. This semester has been especially satisfying in that the class, Fundamentals of Public Speaking, has a myriad of circumstances and lifestyles. I have been fortunate to have three veterans in my class who have served in the Armed Services.
