Letter: Stay constitutional

President Barack Obama said at the conclusion of a recent event that, “We can do better” to reduce gun violence. I agree that yes, we can do better!

We can do better prosecuting straw purchasers, we can do better helping those at risk of suicides, we can do better providing treatment for those suffering with mental-health issues and we can do better cracking down on drug dealers and gangs,

And none of the stuff we can do better involves infringing on the Second Amendment.
