Letter: Founders and 2nd Amendment

I would like to make some comments about Donna Murdock's letter ("Make America safer," June 17). First she says she wants all people to live life on their own terms, even if its not the way we like. She then wants to take my choice away because she doesn't like guns. She needs to read about the Founding Fathers and what they were doing. The 2nd amendment isn't about hunting at all. All the Amendments were God-given rights. They were listed in the order of importance. The first was to make sure you could air your grievances, and the second was to guarantee your first. It is also to keep the government in check. These killings are terrible but they were not done with automatic weapons. To live in the land of the free will never be safe.
