Re: "Ban vehicles to end drunken driving," Jan. 28 letter:
I agree completely that it is legal to own a gun or a car, as Kent Cartner suggests. I'm sure that law-abiding citizens will also agree that it is not absurd to register all guns just as we register cars.

Re: "Gun registration makes sense," Feb. 10 letter:
Debora Warren's assertion that because we register cars, therefore it is not absurd to register guns, is ludicrous. She forgets that operating a car on public roads is a privilege granted by the state, and owning and possessing firearms is a right reserved for the people by the Constitution of the United States. There is a vast difference.
