Letter to the Editor: Amendments still valid

If Mr. Steve Swierczek (“A closer look at the Second Amendment,” May 21) thinks the Second Amendment only pertains to the arms of the day then so does the First Amendment.

He should throw out his computer and ballpoint pen, gather firewood for his fireplace, and turn off his electricity. He should only use parchment paper with a quill pen and inkwell and his news should only arrive with a person on horseback or on foot.

Those amendments were not placed first and second by accident and are as valid in their original form today as the day they were written.
