Amendment's point

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

I am writing in response to Mari Toten's April 9 letter ("Killing Devices"). Specifically, I am referring to her opinion that most gun rights proponents argue we need guns to kill animals for food.

The Second Amendment was not included for this reason. It was also not included so I could have a right to hunt on weekends, shoot leisurely at targets or collect guns.

It was included to protect us against an oppressive government.
