Letter: Second Amendment not a threat


How can an inert document/idea (Second Amendment) be a threat of any kind? It cannot. As with all else, how it is used can be a threat. It was incorporated into our constitution to curb central government. Any weapon bans will not prevent violence as such bans only target law-abiding citizens. The post-George Floyd defund-the-police effort has demonstrated: “When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.”
