In a letter to the editor in today’s local newspaper, the writer argued in favor of the Second amendment by listing minorities who were killed in countries around the world that did not have guns for self-protection. I sincerely doubt that the writer would favor arming minorities within the US. Imagine blacks, Hispanics and Muslims arming to protect themselves and their families. There would be such an outcry as there was a few years ago with the New Black Panthers and the Black Panthers before them. Armed self-defense in this country is the right only of the white majority.
