HECTOR HERNANDEZ, San Clemente

I admire and support Brooke Beahm’s call to gun safety. Unfortunately, the United States Supreme Court has other ideas.

Last week’s ruling that the Second Amendment allows for anyone to carry a gun in public shows the influence gun lobbies and manufacturers have over them.

I know we will all feel safer at theaters, concerts and sporting events knowing unqualified people sitting around you are carrying guns and maybe assault rifles.

This, of course, is good news to San Clemente being a Second Amendment Freedom City.

Thank you, Brooke, for your thoughtful appeal. But today, the lunatics are running the asylum.
