Sunday's anti-gun letter from Australia makes me wonder if this person has learned anything from history. (See: "Aussie's gun advice")

I don't trust a government that is afraid to allow its citizens to protect themselves.

The Germans disarmed the countries they occupied. The Russians and Chinese did the same thing. It sure made it easy to round them up for extermination. I want to make them pay a high price if they come for me or my family. The Germans had plans to exterminate most of Eastern Europe so they could expand their country.

Tyrants have an easy time dealing with writers and other helpless people. This is why our founding fathers put it in the Bill of Rights.

As sorry as I am for the recent deaths, several million killed is worse.
