Letter: Thank goodness for technology



In response to Howard Leighty’s Aug. 8 letter, “Accept amendment’s original intent,” of course the Second Amendment was based on the technology of the day — the deadliest, most modern technology of the day.

I don’t want to put on my powdered wig, pantaloons and tricorn hat to issue a strongly-worded quill on sheep parchment.
