Letter: Does 2nd Amendment apply for all guns?

We can now see what will follow from implementation of the Second Amendment; it is that we shall have adequate security. In an effort to change our violent modern society to what the founders of our country intended, we now have free access to rapid-fire semi-automatic firearms that fire faster than a Gatling gun. Some say that we should have access to whatever armament we want, and isn't that what the founders intended? We have to protect ourselves. Our country's having one-half of all the firearms in the world is not near enough. The more guns we have, the better.

However, we cannot allow funding of the federal agency which has been charged with checking firearm registrations to determine whether we have a psychosis or a criminal record, because a foreign government may invade and use the list to find registrants, and knock down the front door of us sane, law abiding, patriotic citizens to take away our firearms.

In our brave new world, community security will now change with guards having high powered firearms at the doors of schools, retail establishments and wherever we may tread. But, a problem is whether security personnel will be trustworthy. Furthermore, will we really want to circulate on the streets of a community where criminals and psychotics also may be armed?

Therefore, the next phase of returning to the founders' dream is closed, gated communities with a perimeter guarded by known community members. Each gated community will have to retain the right to exclude those whom they do not trust. Obtaining supplies won't be a problem because all goods will be purchased from Amazon.com or Schwan's Foods.

Gated community schools and home schooling will become the norm. And, after all, a lot of educational stuff is available on the Internet.

Though we have a right to any armament we want, opponents may want to ban bazookas. But, if someone wants a bazooka for target practice, doesn't the Second Amendment protect them, too? Shouldn't we have access to any armament we want for target practice and to protect our families?
