YAHOO! reports that: ((“Guns & Ammo, “the world’s most widely read firearms magazine,” is under fire from angry readers over a “shocking” editorial published in the December issue supporting gun control.
“Way too many gun owners still seem to believe that any regulation of the right to keep and bear arms is an infringement,” contributing editor Dick Metcalf wrote in a column titled “Let’s Talk Limits.” “The fact is, all constitutional rights are regulated, always have been, and need to be.”
Because of the Second Amendment, Metcalf argues, “all U.S. citizens have a right to keep and bear arms, but I do not believe that they have a right to use them irresponsibly.”
Not surprisingly, many readers are flocking to the Guns & Ammo Facebook page, threatening to cancel their subscriptions and boycott the magazine’s advertisers until Metcalf is fired.”))
If all he said was “don’t be irresponsible with your guns”… then, I don’t understand the issue.
Don’t be irresponsible with your car… same thing. BUT… when he started “interpreting” the Second Amendment, THAT’S where things went South. I do, and always will… have the fundamental right to defend myself, my family, and my property. Period. NO one can “legislate” that away from me. AND HOW I CHOSE TO DO IT, AND THE METHOD I CHOSE (for example, an AR-15) TO USE, IS MY CHOICE. (underline “MY”) NO one will take my gun away through Legislation. “You can’t take my gun away from me, because YOU DON’T KNOW I HAVE IT.”
And if you think I’m gonna run down to the local Sheriff’s department and register it….. you’ve got another thought coming.
