Reader Input: Mindless need to misinform

-A +A

It is long past time for the self-esteemed Walter F. Drysdale, M.D., to educate himself on the reason for inclusion of the Second Amendment to our Constitution (“Preserve, don’t re-win freedoms,” Reader Input, Jan. 20).
There is readily available literature or – if reading is as difficult for him as writing a coherent paragraph – endless websites he might peruse explaining why it was included.
Googling “Slavery and the Second Amendment” will give him – and anyone who still believes it was included for citizens’ protection – at least the start of an education on the subject, and perhaps curtail his mindless need to misinform.
