We get to decide what we need

How many letters talk about you not "needing" an AR15? How many politicians are saying you don't "need" a 30 round clip? Quite frankly, all these blathering opinions are getting rather boring. The fact of the matter is this; we live in the United States of America. We are a free people. We get to decide what we need or not. It's no one else's business nor do they have any right to tell me what I don't need. That's my business and mine alone as long as it's in the realm of legal possession.
Every one of these righteous folks who know what I don't need, should take an inventory of their own house and actually look at what they have and determine what they need, or would they rather have someone else do that. We all have things we need and we all have things we want. That's the difference and thank God I'm in America and have that right.
