To the editor:

Bob Eschliman hit a home run out of the park with his March 12 “Common Sense” column. Thank you!

Not only are the Third, Fourth, Fifth and Ninth amendments shot, we are now in deep jeopardy of losing our Second Amendment rights. Not to mention [President Obama] has no real respect for our Constitution.

When are we all going to learn it is not the gun, it is the person. I cannot understand why people don’t understand this.

As far as laws on the book and background checks go, that’s old news.

You have to take a class in Iowa. We hunt, and we target shoot, so I think it is a terrific idea. You learn to respect the weapon.

Let’s put our laws on the books to use and use what we have already.
