Rallies across our lands have been held lately, protesting the “stay at home” directives of mayors and governors, due to this Coronavirus that can force one’s lungs into a collapsing state, to a point that inhaling the breath of life is no longer possible. This is a terrible way to test one’s ability to survive, and ventilators may not help in some cases, as has been reported.
Naturally, people that have not been affected by this terrible virus are getting restless, and wish to get back to work, go shopping, to the beaches, restaurants, etc; Whatever everyday life has entailed. Naturally also is the fact that many Americans are of the millions of minimum wage workers, where both husband and wife are paid minimum wage. They live paycheck to paycheck, with not even a savings account. These are the people that desperately are in need of stimulus checks.
Sorry, folks, the above mentioned souls could not join you for your rallies. They were in these long auto lines, waiting for a turn to get one box of survival food to take beck home to feed hungry children. This is leading us up to the main point of this letter, which was the disgusting scenes shown by our news media, showing people attending these rallies with their assault rifles. Now we need an amendment to our Second Amendment to stop people like you from stretching the Second Amendment beyond its definition.
Perhaps you could benefit from an old Johnny Cash song titled “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town.”
