Letter To The Editor: Response To Jody Benson

Los Alamos
Some people might raise a minor issue with the editorial of Jody Benson published Sunday, June 26 in the Los Alamos Daily Post.
To quote the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights:
“Right of people to bear arms not to be infringed. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.“
Some people might feel strongly that the Bill of Rights should be interpreted as for the time period when it was written and not falsely extrapolated to the modern world.
