Regarding Steve Orton’s letter to the editor, “Amendment isn’t about individuals”:

It’s impossible to have a rational debate about guns with people who don’t know history. There are numerous arguments in the Federalist Papers about fighting the tyranny of government but nothing about how to “procure food and protect themselves from thieves or animals.” Perhaps the letter writer has never heard of the Federalist Papers.
