This letter responds to the letter by Mr. Richard Saunders in the Oct.11 issue.
He urges gun owners to vote Democrat, and assures them that the Democrats don’t want to take their guns away. However, in the past 20 years, the top leaders of the Democratic Party have made it crystal clear that is precisely what they want to do. They want to follow the lead of Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand in either totally disarming their populations or greatly cutting back on citizen gun ownership.
If brought to power, the Democrats would use every means of laws, rules, regulations, taxes, licenses, arrests, and lawsuits to strangulate the Second Amendment with the ultimate and cherished goal of ending citizen gun ownership in America. Gun owners, beware of false assurances.
