Gun restrictions only make people less safe

To the editor:

Just by chance, as I was sitting here preparing to make a small donation to the “Second Amendment Foundation,” I heard on the news about the shooting incident when a man with a gun came into a Philadelphia hospital and started shooting. It so happened that in this case a psychiatrist at the hospital pulled out his own legal gun and stopped the man by shooting him three times.

It was only 15 or 20 minutes earlier that the news was talking about all the shootings and violence and killings in Chicago in the recent past. Chicago is one of the strictest cities in the U.S. as far as gun restriction goes, yet it is one of the most violent and crime ridden cities in the nation. Washington D.C. is another such place and it also has an extremely high murder and violent crime rate.

The point is anti-gun laws are not the way to go. The quickest way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun. Wake up America.
