2nd Amendment: 'History Lesson'

August 26, 1988

Thank you for your editorial. It certainly helped clarify my thinking about our Bill of Rights.

Now I understand that the Second Amendment has to do with the economic problems of the federal government maintaining a standing army.

Unlike nine other amendments which were clearly and unmistakably written to protect individuals from the abuses of government, The Times explains, "This amendment is really about national security."

Who writes your history books, Joseph Stalin?
