Re "Gun laws don't stop bombs" and "Majority rule can be tyranny" (Letters, April 19): Anyone with a knowledge of logic will see through the false implication of, "Doesn't the Boston marathon tragedy prove more gun laws will not stop mass killings?"
The correct negative answer to this question is consistent with our laws banning the possession of bazookas, silencers, 50-caliber firearms and other instruments of destruction. There have been for many years "pesky" restrictions on the Second Amendment. Those calling for limitations on magazine capacity, universal background checks, and yes - military style weapons - would be additional restrictions many folks deem reasonable.
The rights we have as outlined in the First Amendment -- freedom of speech, assembly and the press -- are all reasonably restricted.
