Letter: Support all amendments

June 25, 2014 

Second Amendment fans were no doubt pleased to read in the Herald that congressional hopeful Clint Didier is a firm supporter ("Didier campaign having gun giveaway," June 18).

As a fan of the entire U.S. Constitution, I was chagrined to see that he appeared unaware of any amendments beyond the Tenth, saying that the reason for the Second Amendment is "to protect the other nine."

A quick Internet search would have told Didier that there are a total of twenty-seven amendments to the U.S. Constitution, not ten. I sincerely hope he will make a study of them so he will be prepared to uphold and defend them in the event he should win office.
