Op/Ed

Letter to the editor: Yes on guns but no on masks?

I just read Christopher Ross’s piece on mask wearing in Bristol. I agree with the wearing of masks in public. It is such a simple and proactive measure to take and agree it should have been mandated long ago, but understand our governor’s position, too. 
What I don’t understand is what in the 2nd Amendment gives the right for someone to wear a gun into a Laundromat, of all places. Shocked, dismayed and horrified don’t begin to express how I really feel about it. I lived in Philadelphia (in a very dicey neighborhood) for 25 years and never felt the fear I feel today.
