Dear Editor:

I’ve always thought that the man in charge of our beautiful free nation would be a very intelligent person. His sidekick, not so much. But recently they have come out with one of the stupidest statements I have ever heard in my 62 years in this beautiful nation. It’s concerning gun control.

First of all, the last four words of the second amendments are, “shall not be infringed.” Does that not mean anything to these people? This is what our country was built on!! Leave it alone, you are dividing our beautiful country!!

Back to the stupid statement that would require that semi-automatic weapons only be allowed to hold 7 bullets in a clip. Are you kidding me? I would absolutely love to ask our vice president first, “How many gangsters do you think will abide by that law?”

Then you know that he would come up with some really stupid answer, of which then I would like to hear the president try to defend his answer.

I’m sure that the next bad guy that plans on doing a bank robbery, or home burglary, etc. is going to think, “wow, I better take all but 7 bullets our of my auto, I sure wouldn’t want to get in trouble for that!”

Concerned, Stan Bassett
