Letter to the editor: Second Amendment is absolute

I must disagree with David Millstein’s letter “Commissioners misguided on gun-rights resolution” (March 21, TribLIVE). He wrote that the Second Amendment’s language is not absolute. That is incorrect. The intended scope and reach are binding forever. Absolute means total and complete, not diminished in any way. The Second Amendment is easy to read and to the point, as it was intended. I have read it hundreds of times as a former district judge, and now as a sheriff. Read it and pause with the commas. Right to Bear Arms: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.“ Its meaning is clear. Do not limit or undermine the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Categories: Letters to the Editor | Opinion
