Many thanks to Franklin Whittlesey for his latest informational column, this one on the subject of how guns are made. I had no idea!
But I do have one idea: Mr. Whittlesey should reduce his viewing time of Fox News and perhaps switch to reading some newspapers and news magazines at the Del Webb Library so as to escape his fantasy world and get some of his facts straight.
Lawmakers are not trying to override the Second Amendment and take everyone’s guns away, only restrict
the possession of 300-rounds-per-minute killing machines and huge magazines that serve no purpose ex-cept in law enforcement and the military.
Even legitimate sportsmen (of whom I know many) have no objections to these efforts, since passage of these laws would not infringe on the rights of law-abiding Americans to continue their hunting, target-shooting and availability to obtain legal carry permits.
So please, Mr. Whittlesey, before issuing your next manifesto, please do some research.
