GUNS: Is this ‘freedumb’ what I fought for?

Re: “Armed nation is a free nation” (letter, 8-2).

I’d sure like to know where the freedom is here in the United States these days.

Right now American families have to be very concerned about being shot to death just about anywhere we go, including movie theaters, restaurants, schools, parks and shopping malls.

Maybe what we really have these days should be called “freedumb,” as it isn’t anything like what I fought for over in Vietnam 4o-plus years ago.
