To the Editor: Simple question

To the Editor: 

Where are the words for another right? 

Lately we are reading and hearing many words on gun rights, but we are hearing no words on the right to life. Perhaps this is because these words have taken on a meaning of their own and, in the process, have lost their essential meaning. 

Arguments based on our sacred documents affirm the right to own a gun and the right to life; gun rights/the U.S. Constitution: right to life/The Declaration of Independence. 

How many people have to forfeit their lives before there is real gun reform? 

All arguments aside, the final question is simpleWhich right should have more value – the right to own a gun or the right to liveThere is no rational or moral ambiguity regarding the answer.
