That essay was written over 200 years ago, no need to re-write it.
why they should be granted the Second Amendment credentials.

Essay, with footnotes:
Because I can(1). The end.
(1) Footnote - US Constitution and Bill of Rights.
-—hummm—and then there used to be “poll taxes” and voter questionaires -—wonder if the Massholes ever heard of those—?
Shall not be infringed.
That is just in Lowell, right?
Because I never did well on essay questions.
I don’t think this is anything new, this has been around for a while, since I got my permit a decade or so ago.
It does irk me that I had to write a letter to get a carry permit, but since that is how business was being done, that is what I did.
What I hate even more than the process of having to write an essay is that the process is at the discretion of the Chief of Police.
If you have a good one, you are in luck. If you have a jerk, you are out of luck, as simple as that.
This can be quickly shot down, by proclaiming the essay rule “racist”.
“Between the 1890s and 1960s, literacy tests were administered to prospective voters and used to disenfranchise racial minorities.”
Gun rights are even more important than voting rights, so obviously the city council and police chief of Lowell, Massachusetts, are bitter racists.
In other words:
NO GUNS FOR YOU PROLES!!
Pretty crappy reporting. This is not statewide and only applies to Lowell, MA. The chief in my town would never comply with such a directive.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Eff them and their dammed permits.
Once again, it’s momma asking:
“Whaddya need that for?”
Massachusetts is giving ‘The Onion’ a run for their money..
Elect a pro-2nd amendment, constitutional sheriff to run this commie police chief out of Lowell.
If there can be no literacy test for voting, there should be no literacy test for firearms ownership.
The Gun Is Civilization
