In a letter published Feb. 2, Alistair McBain stated that “tyranny is not going to happen in seconds” so assault weapons need to be locked up.

I contend that tyranny is alive and well in Washington. The far left has established a government that’s professed mission is to remove wealth from a segment of our society that earned it through hard work and sacrifice and to give that wealth to another segment which has done nothing to deserve the transfer. The far left uses force and the threat of force to accomplish their goals.

That is tyranny.
