Get tough on criminals, not legal gun owners

Written by

To the editor,
This is in response to Jerry Hanson’s anti-gun letter on Nov. 5. Once again anti-gunners want to pick away at my 2nd Amendment right. They want to ban weapons made for war. Whether they were in the service makes no difference to me, but shotguns and pistols were and are now commonly used in wars.

Ban weapons made for war

Written by

To the editor,
(This letter is in response to the letter from Michael Buchek in the Oct. 22 Walworth County Sunday.)

After World War II, the Army’s research found that the chief predictor of casualties was the number of shots fired in a short period of time. The military asked arms manufacturers to develop a lightweight weapon with a large detachable magazine that could be used to inflict extreme damage. The AR-15 became the military’s standard-issue weapon. Weapons similar to the AR-15 are available to any citizen along with magazines that carry up to 100 rounds.
