This interpretation of Second Amendment is not at all scholarly

To the editor,,
Dear Mr. Wiles,
It would truly be amusing if it weren't so sad that you chose to speak on behalf of Don Ewing. Where to begin in answering your diatribe, aka letter, in response to my query of weaponry for private citizens.
By your verbiage alone you allow us insight as to your feelings about the NRA, gun manufacturers, the Second Amendment and President Obama, just to name a few. Demeaning President Obama with all of your inappropriate and misleading labels is discouraging and disrespectful of his office.
Aren't we lucky as Americans to have a First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which allows you and I to have free speech in an open society. Just try to picture if we were living in a country where citizens are "muzzled" or imprisoned because they dare to speak out and voice their opinions.
What truly puzzles me is your so called interpretation of the Second Amendment. At best it is neither scholarly or in-depth and at it's worst totally misleading.
Although you feel that you had to interject your opinion, I am still awaiting an answer from Don Ewing to my recent query.
