Although I knew that "The Federalist Papers" weren't originally a book (Letters, Feb. 26), the question is, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China?
For a teacher of history and constitutional law, it amazes me that letter writer knows about the existence of the book but obviously never read them.
Try reading Federalist Papers Nos. 28 and 29 written by Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Paper No. 46 by James Madison.
"The Anti-Federalist Papers," of which I have read, have nothing pro or con on gun ownership. The authors just didn't want a strong federal government. They were the ones who demanded that the Bill of Rights be placed as an addendum to the Constitution, putting individual, state and federal rights down in writing as was done in Virgina's DOR.
