• • It's Debatable: The great debate over gun control
Carol Morgan and Donald May, Avalanche-Journal (Lubbock, TX) From Carol: Do your Second Amendment rights trump my guarantee of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness given to me by the Declaration of Independence? Even Ayn Rand claimed man cannot be deprived of his life for the benefit of another man. The “it’s my right” philosophy is the motive for many of our societal challenges, including gun violence. We no longer care about the “benefit for another man,” the welfare of all, or the collective spirit.
