Second Amendment needs to be re-defined for the modern times

Dear Editor,

It is my notion that the right to bear arms is very similar to the right to smoke; they both have a cancerous effect that contributes to the decay in modern society. We as a society can continue to ignore and look the other way with temporary fixes that give the appearance of seriousness; however, the reality is: there are too many guns in the US; and our too-many-guns are being turned on us.

I believe all the suggested legislation on the table as of now might make it difficult to sell certain weapons; yet, it does not address the ability to steal weapons and really determine what type of individual will snap and commit violence. In my opinion, unless the Second Amendment is re-defined for the modern times, all legislative attempts to reduce violence may be futile.

    There is no right to smoke enshrined in the Constitution, that’s a silly comparison. The Founding Fathers included the Second Amendment as a way to protect us from a tyrannical government.
