Letters to the Editor


The president wants to disarm the citizens of this country and spoke immediately to push for this after the Oregon shootings, not knowing the details at all. He says a few simple laws would fix this problem of violence. Never mind he never talks about the nightly murders in Chicago with all its strict gun control laws, his home town.

Well, let’s look back at Prohibition and how well that did. There was more booze sold and gangsters’ careers launched than stars in the sky. As sane people know, it’s not the gun but the corrupted soul of the person that does this kind of thing. But, alas, the Democrats will continue to push for the elimination of the 2nd Amendment, which would facilitate a dictatorial government at all levels.

I have a proposal: The next Democrat Convention should have absolutely no security or attendees with guns allowed. If you’re going to talk the talk then walk the walk. Set the example for the rest of us. We’ll be watching this like the best reality TV show on cable.

Go for it Dems, show the country what works. I am sure you Democrats will be fighting to get in line to implement this “Progressive” policy.
