Letter: Second Amendment already law of the land

Editor:

The second amendment is a part of the US.Constitution and the Law of the Land., notwithstanding the support of the County Supervisors. Interpretation of its meaning is reserved for Federal Judiciary, not local authorities.

A few years ago I attended a local legislative candidates forum and asked about their views on a proposed “right to hunt” amendment to the state Constitution.

They all opened their answers with a vigorous defense of the Second Amendment, which has nothing to do with hunting. It may grant you rights to own weapons used for hunting, but to use them for such a purpose is a privilege, not a right, and you face regulations meant for public safety and sustainable animal populations, and to generate funds for their enforcement.

Which leads me to believe many local politicians don’t understand what they are supporting but do it anyway due to its popularity with voters.

The purpose of the Second Amendment is to guarantee your right to protect your life, family, property, and country..
