Most of us have seen the televised scenes of people lined up around around the block near gun shows and shops.
According to the newscasts, the people are waiting for their opportunity to buy a weapon, be it a rifle, a pistol or shotgun.
I have a news flash regarding these Americans clinging to their guns and religion:
They are not “in love” with guns; they are not buying guns because they are flush with cash.
These citizens are buying weapons because they don’t trust their government.
They understand far better than the administration and the talking heads why the founders included the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
Perhaps it’s time for the previous Chicago adjunct instructor of law to really study the United States Constitution.
