Letter to the editor: Another issue

OK, neighbors, I warned you last week (with the Death Panel comments) that you might be hearing from me again soon. I just went ahead with this also after that one. I should have waited until the Day of Resistance meeting so I might have a report. Maybe that will come later. Some of you attended that gathering and may wish to share your thoughts.
So, a comment on national level gun control. I should say, more questions than statements, thought you may infer my statement from my questions (similar to last week's letter):
Why is the executive branch of our government pushing so hard to remove guns from the hands of private citizens? When the chief executive tries to tell us that our guns don't protect us, why is he surrounded by 15 (by count) men carrying guns when he is involved in a political parade? The issue here seems to be that if a person is otherwise law-abiding, neighbor-respecting, his ownership of a gun will not change that. If he is a gang member in Chicago, he may have no quarrels about participating in the murder of one of the 42 gang members killed each month in that city. Maybe we could take a lot of business away from the police departments and mortuaries if we could lock up (or execute) ones convicted of murder?
What I fear is that gun registration proceeds gun confiscation (from the law abiding ones who register), which proceeds to final destruction of the free society we once had.
Comments and participate, please.
