Re "Why I'm one of those gun owners who supports gun control" (Jack Ohman, Jan. 19): Jack Ohman's column is a perfect example of how the fear mongering marches on. He irresponsibly made all inclusive statements as to the character of those who own AR-15s, which are not military weapons.
The public is being horribly misinformed about these firearms and the people who own them. These guns do not function the same as the weapons used in our military, they are only cosmetically similar. Additionally, the second amendment does not guarantee the ownership of sporting purpose guns. It was a well thought out insurance policy, which should not be infringed on emotion.
