I can no longer sit by and read the letters printed in the Sun Journal about gun control.

The underlying message is a plea to government officials to make more laws that tell people how to live. Those people are saying that they can’t make any decisions by themselves. They claim that guns keep killing people and they can’t defend themselves, so please take them all away and all will be well.

I am baffled by people such as Ellen Field (letter, March 28). I cannot understand how blaming the guns for killing people will help at all. What next? Do we ask the government to remove or restrict automobiles because drivers get drunk and kill people?

Field is asking the government to restrict the public. This is a free country. The people who fight and die for this country should be appalled.

I would like to understand which word of the Second Amendment people who want gun control don’t understand: “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.”

Restricting access to firearms is definitely infringing on my rights, that much is clear.
