Letter: Want to be safer? Fight against erosion of Second Amendment

The world is and has always been a very dangerous place. Everyone should know that they are 100 percent responsible for their own personal safety, and that of others, at all times. Being armed is only one component of that responsibility. 

The elimination of gun free zones would do more for safety than banning any kind of firearm. We must resist the erosion of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, with every means available.

That is simply being responsible.
