Reread 2nd Amendment stipulation on regulation

Tuesday, one person was killed in a shooting at Purdue University.

The same day, The Times published a story about "road rage" shootings. The police blamed aggressive driving.

The previous Saturday, the Connersville, Ind., police chief accidentally shot himself at a gun show.

Maybe the problem in many of these cases is too many firearms circulating with too many people who lack the judgment to own and operate firearms.

The Republican Party has put a bunch of activist judges on the bench who are preventing states from enacting firearms regulations to provide for a free and secure society.

People should read the first half of the Second Amendment, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State ..."

The Second Amendment obligates government to regulate firearms in a way that provides security and freedom.
