Times have changed since Founders’ days

But I’m getting tired of listening to the NRA speaking about our “Founding Fathers” as if they were gods. They argue that we must leave the Second Amendment alone because the “Founding Fathers” created it. Interesting.Based on that philosophy, we need to repeal women’s right to vote because those founders didn’t think they should have suffrage. Come to think of it, we need to change our census and start counting African-Americans as three-fifths of a person just like the “Founding Fathers” wanted it. I’m surprised there was no amendment guaranteeing us the right for Americans to own automobiles. Oh, they weren’t invented yet.Times sure have changed in the last 250 years. Maybe our thinking should, too. Thomas ReiterDelansonMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady County warns of possible COVID-19 exposure at Schenectady restaurant, Rotterdam barFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsLocal movie theater operators react to green lightEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more
