Guns protect us

Re the May 31 letter Wear orange for Miami: I am aghast at the naiveté of Democrats and their liberal progressive agenda to obtain gun-control legislation.

The fact we legal U.S. citizens have the right to keep and bear arms is specifically to protect ourselves from evil. Guns level the playing field against evil. This has always been their true intent.

Apparently, numerous proponents of gun control have never owned, shot or needed a gun. Moreover, these misinformed people are willing to forget or rewrite history.

The Second Amendment exists on purpose and most definitely isn’t a fluke. Donning an orange outfit won’t save you when evil comes knocking. A gun can and will when it’s respected, which is the entire point.
