Disappointing and discouraging

Many letters in the Sun-Gazette urge us to be armed so we are ready to protect ourselves from our Federal Government. Such letters far outnumber the letters that urge us to be informed and active voters. This is disappointing and discouraging.

After all, if we need arms to protect ourselves from the government we have elected, then we have failed as a people to govern ourselves wisely.

And arms can’t protect us from that.
