More than any group, the Jewish community should demand less, not more regulation (“Needed: sensible firearm regulation,” Oct. 13, Jewish News).

The A2 (Second Amendment), by its inclusion of a “well regulated militia” phrase, indicates that the right is for personal protection and “security” when government is oppressive or, more importantly, unable to provide such security. Malevolent or mentally ill people will always find a way to kill or injure as is so well illustrated in Europe. Bombs, trucks and other available means are just as deadly as firearms.
