Gun Rights

A well known slogan among gun owners and NRA members is “the Second protects the First,” meaning the right to bear arms protects freedom of speech. I agree with this. It seems our president has his own interpretation of this slogan, and that should be worrisome to all gun owners. The president claims to believe strongly in the Second Amendment, but shows total distain for the First Amendment, calling the media “fake news” and the enemy of the people. Is this how he feels about freedom of speech? Russia, China and North Korea are dictatorships where First and Second Amendment rights don’t exist. These countries are also our sworn enemies. So what is our president’s opinion of the leaders of these countries? Donald Trump takes Vladimir Putin’s word over that of his own intelligence people, he praises China’s new law extending the president’s term for life, and says he loves Kim Jong Un. If under our current regime our First Amendment were to disappear, the Second would rapidly follow. Look at the countries mentioned in my above paragraph. That’s how democracies become dictatorships. Keep a close eye on a president who speaks so highly of our enemies, otherwise he may someday be one of them. ROBERT W. McKAY Grove City
