Letter to the editor: Deadly choice

May 12, 2017


To the editor:

Thank you for your editorial against guns on college campuses last week. Americans are 25 times more likely to die from gun violence than citizens of other developed nations. Professors are resigning because they don’t want to teach in this environment. Our economy lags behind those of our border states. Campus carry seems like another disincentive to our economic recovery, as well as a deadly choice.

The murder rate is elevated by the high crime centered in Democrat controlled hell-hole. Factor them out and things are much better.

Texas is a republican state, so there goes that theory. Back under your bridge troll boy

Chicago and Baltimore were the primary offenders in mind, girl.

Texas is not completely Red. Houston, the city which ranks as the most violent has a Democrat mayor and Odessa which has the highest murder rate until just this election had a democrat mayor.

I think Maryland and Illinois should establish sanctuary cities for their unarmed residents.

As for the CDC statistics, I believe those numbers include accidents and suicides.
