I have known Dr. Len Kirschner for many years and respect him as an individual and for his candid approach to politics in general.
He is a very intelligent and patriotic man who served his country with distinction in the U.S. Air Force.
However, I must take exception to his latest letter to the editor of the Litchfield Park Independent entitled “The Core Problem,” in which he concludes: “We need to repeal the Second Amendment!”
Is this his personal interpretation of the Second Amendment?
In 2008, based upon their interpretation of the Second Amendment, the Supreme Court ruled in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller that all Americans have a Constitutional right to own guns.
Regardless of one’s interpretation of the Second Amendment, if it were to be repealed, the only ones left with guns would be the criminals.
Such action would only embolden them as we all know how they feel about obeying the law.
