It wont fix the problem
In regard to Morrisville Mayor Jackie Holcombes open letter to Gander Mountain in which she urges the company to stop selling semi-automatic rifles at its local store, she mentioned we need to look at what the Second Amendment means and what it was intended to do.
The Second Amendment was written to be the last source of power the American people have to force our will upon our government. She seems to want to have a discussion on how to avoid or eliminate the Second Amendment, and I find that horribly inappropriate.
We must find the reasons for these tragedies and deal with the issues that cause them. Finding ways, even by simple request, to limit the rights of Americans is a solution in search of a problem and will do nothing to lessen the scope, number or impact these tragedies have.Adam Schultz Morrisville
