Letter: Good Second Amendment column

I want to commend Tammy Messina for her excellent column discussing the true purpose of the Second Amendment.

There’s something I often point out in these discussions on this topic: Everyone’s heard about the Battles of Lexington and Concord, The Shot Heard Round The World, but most people forget what those battles were actually all about.

The Redcoats weren’t just out for a march that day and happened to have some bad luck by running into some disgruntled farmers. They were on their way to confiscate the colonials’ guns.

So I think its absolutely fair to say that the precipitating event that brought about our own Revolution was an attempt by the government to impose gun control and confiscation.
