ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Guns are made for self-defense for all of our citizens (“National parks will open gates to holders of concealed guns,” Page I, Monday). They are our first line of defense against government and criminals. Our Founding Fathers knew that, which is why they adopted the Second Amendment.

Thank God for the National Rifle Association and other people who keep protecting our right to carry guns. No gun has ever jumped up out of a holster and shot anyone of its own volition. A person is the shooter. If saving lives is the issue, we should lower the national speed limit for cars down to 35 mph. No more traffic deaths.

The first thing a victim has to say after a robbery is that he wishes he had a gun at the time. If someone’s family member is attacked and/or robbed and hurt, most of these anti-gun advocates would be running to join the NRA.
