Letter: Second amendment outdated

The second amendment to the Constitution of the United States is only one sentence in length. It reads: “A well regulated militia, being necessary for the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” This amendment should be considered in total context.

When the second amendment was adopted more than 200 years ago, this new nation had no standing army. It is obvious that our forefathers were primarily concerned with the development of a citizens militia. When they adopted this amendment, there were no automatic weapons.
