Letter: Guns a check on government

A certain cautionary temper is necessary relative to the present government response to gun control. Having left an oppressive government, our forefathers recognized the necessity of putting gun rights in the hands of the populace, and affirmed this by placing this right in the Second Amendment of our Constitution. A common thread inherent in all dictatorships is total gun control. An individual with a gun is a citizen. An individual without a gun is a subject.
