Letter: Harriet Tubman carried firearms

The U.S. Treasury is replacing former President Andrew

The U.S. Treasury is replacing former President Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. Credit: Women on 20s

Harriet Tubman gracing the $20 bill is a choice that is right on the money [“It’s Harriet Tubman,” News, April 21].

Let’s not forget, though, that this amazing person was a rifle-carrying woman who, while defending and advancing the rights of others, was exercising her Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg and others of similar mind would probably have her register her firearm, get a license or permit, and undergo a background check before she undertook her work as an avid abolitionist!
