Rose should leave law-abiding gun owners alone (letter to the editor)

Kudos to the advance for getting the 11th District candidates together to enable us to hear where they stand on issues. I must say on the gun control issue I was not happy with Max Rose’s opinions. He said most of the illegal gun crimes in New York City were from out-of-state gun purchases. If criminals are selling/buying guns and crossing state lines with them illegally, I suggest he propose legislation for stiffer penalties, and, as a member of the Homeland Security Committee, go after them, rather than the millions of law-abiding gun owners whose rights he wants to restrict, making them pay for other people’s crimes and his governmental incompetence. As for the “national gun policy” he wants, somebody needs to inform him that we already have one — it’s called the Second Amendment. (John Clark is an Eltingville resident.)
