Reasonable regulations don't encroach on rights

I must re- spectfully, but emphatically, disagree with my colleague, Deb Palmieri's editorial of Jan. 30, "Administration's encroachment on the Second Amendment is unacceptable."

Sadly, instead of recognizing that the right to bear arms, like other rights guaranteed in our Constitution, is not absolute, Deb results to the 'slippery slope' argument that other gun rights extremists are using, when she says, "First, assault weapons … and magazines holding more than 10 rounds will be banned. Then, semi-automatic pistols such as the Glock, will be banned."
