I was extremely offended by the cartoon on the Opinion page July 2 concerning the recent Supreme Court ruling on gun law.
The Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right of the people to keep and bear arms, which is all the Supreme Court finally ruled on. This document is what the United States was built upon, what every president swears to protect and what every soldier risks his life for. It is not some cheap piece of paper that the government can decide to follow or not. It is law. It is the beginning of the greatest country in the world. It is Constitution of the United States of America.
The Supreme Court was put in place to defend the Constitution and keep government from overstepping its bounds, which seems to be happening at an alarming rate these days.
