I noticed in the May 9 Savanna Times-Journal (and the May 8 Carroll County Mirror-Democrat) that there were a couple of the county's citizens who were expressing displeasure with the Carroll County Board for passing a resolution in support of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
They probably understand that a resolution passed by the County Board isn't binding, but just in case they didn't, I felt compelled to write.
The resolution isn't asking for any new freedom, it's only requesting that the Legislature in Springfield will allow us to keep a freedom we already have and enjoy.
The 2nd Amendment isn't about hunting, it's about a free people being able to defend itself against tyranny in all forms. It also supports those other freedoms enumerated in the Bill of Rights.
A quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin says, "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety."
I think that, once again, the Legislature in Springfield is targeting the ordinary citizen with their gun control legislation rather than the criminals who abuse our laws and damage our society.
