My view addresses a much broader spectrum of issues than William Cosgrove's ("Several actions needed in gun debate," Jan. 2).
Just as in politics, there's extremists in the battle of love and hate. The U.S. Constitution — including the Second Amendment — was written for a moral people and is "wholly inadequate for any other," as John Adams said. The more a people become disinclined to obey principled laws, the more inclined legislatures are to pass more. That's like a father whipping all of his 10 children because one guilty child wouldn't fess up to the dirtying of the bathroom curtains used to wipe his hands. Apparently, Cosgrove thinks all 10 children should be spanked!
It's moral for me to be able to protect myself and immoral for the government to take away that right.
