Thomas M. Meredith [April 2 letter] wrote that Greg Morris’ [March 26 column] was “pure fear mongering, filled with innuendos and false statements.” Nothing could be further from the truth. If Morris is suggesting citizens are losing their rights, he is correct. If he is also suggesting that all law-abiding citizens have the right to bear arms, then he is correct again.

I, too, have owned guns for years, I can go hunting if I choose, target shoot, and could buy and sell them at will, and protect my life if it may be necessary . Oh, yes, I have never lived in Chicago, the home of above-board politics.

Any politician or judicial body that believes law-abiding citizens of this nation do not have the protection of the Second Amendment should not be returned to office. Hopefully, the citizenship of this nation does not wake up some morning to realize another freedom has been lost.
