Ready for bare arms instead of guns

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJune 28, 2013 

Ah yes, yet another letter on why we need to do away with guns.

The founding fathers said we have a right to "bear arms," (flint-locks) and this was only for the "militia."

Perhaps doves would feel better if it was discovered that instead of bear arms, it was misspelled and should read bare arms.
