Guns and Privacy

March 23, 1998

Re the March 15 editorial in support of a new gun ban:

It is interesting how The Times can champion infringements on 2nd Amendment rights by promoting legislation for a new gun ban [approved by the state Senate March 19]. At the same time, the newspaper is calling the Personal Privacy Protection Act an unconstitutional infringement on the 1st Amendment.

The natural tendency of the government is to grow and control. It has used the gun-wielding maniac to encroach on our 2nd Amendment rights. Now it will use the camera-wielding maniac to do so on our 1st Amendment rights. In a dark but possible future, after all the privately owned firearms have been confiscated, printing presses will be next.
