Cesar F. Lumba’s letter, “Constitution shows lack of wisdom,” is way off the mark. He criticizes the document using 21st century logic. Apparently he is unable to analyze the document with 18th century thinking.
He argued that the Second Amendment did not distinguish between defensive and recreational arms. In 1787, Americans made no such distinction. Mr. Lumba claims there is no check against the power of the Supreme Court. Yes, there is. It’s called a constitutional amendment. The brilliance of U.S. Constitution lies in its simplicity, and Mr. Lumba has failed to make that connection.
