2nd Amendment correct

Mr. McDonalds’ March 3 letter indicates his perception that the Constitution is askew. The U.S. Supreme Court, that single entity, affirmed the Second Amendment as correct, thereby we have a right to own firearms (all kinds).

I would like to turn the attention to the law; when a person uses a firearm to commit a crime we enhance the sentence. When an assault takes place with a firearm it becomes a felony. We put people in jail for murder, attempted murder and assault with a firearm every day.

These new regulations will do absolutely nothing to stop these crimes much like the felony firearm law that was passed a few years back. It didn’t stop gun violence, didn’t even slow it down. Chicago, the city with the strictest gun control laws on the books, is the murder capital.

Michigan has seen a reduction of violent gun crimes in recent years.
