Letter to the Editor
Sunday, June 16, 2013, 11:40 p.m.

Let me get this straight.

The government can put my phone calls and emails into a giant database, then compare and cross-reference them with billions of other correspondence across the country. And that's OK.

But if I have to register my AK-47 to make sure I'm not mentally disturbed or a criminal, that somehow violates my rights. Guns don't kill people, but phone calls do?

It has finally happened; the inmates are ruling the asylum.
