I see The Washington Post is applying another layer of protective ink on Candidate Clinton (“View From Away: The Second Amendment is not endangered,” Aug. 15)

The topic is the Second Amendment and the reverence Clinton holds for the single amendment included by the Founding Fathers that protects the Constitution and other amendments, and helps ensure the people’s government is controlled by the people and not those who would be queen or king.

I judge Clinton’s Second Amendment position not by assurances from The Washington Post, but rather by watching and listening to her speak the words that truly define her position.

If Clinton is elected president, I would not anticipate immediate executive action against gun ownership. I believe there would be the well-practiced creeping incrementalism against the Second Amendment.

The next major move would be driven by Clinton appointees to the Supreme Court. One or two radical liberal appointees would trigger a Clinton administration Justice Department to present one or more legal actions against the Second Amendment, with the intended outcome being legal paralysis of gun ownership.
