To the editor:

We as a nation have lost our collective minds and our will to be a free Republic. We are shooting each other in mass, but our Congress will not pass gun control laws. An AR15 has but one purpose and that is to kill people and private ownership should be banned. The 2nd Amendment gives private citizens the right to own guns, so we should ban the right to possess 223 ammunition because without ammo, an AR15 is just a long club.
