It's funny how people never complain about showing their IDs at the Social Security Office.

Letter to the editor: Shooting concerns

Craig, there is a Conditional Use Permit for the FOP Lodge that has been issued by Douglas County. I'm sure it's public record. Also, the FOP is actually private property and the range is used only by members of the lodge or law enforcement agencies. So, if you want times posted, I'm sure you would not mind posting the hours that you plan to make noise on your property. Rest assured that the ranges are designed so that bullets are not fired toward the roadway. Your concerns are unfounded.

Democrats stage US House sit-in on guns; GOP unmoved

If gun laws worked, Chicago, the current murder capitol of the world, should be the safest city in the United States. Yet, on most weekends, between 50 and 100 people are shot withn the city limits of Chicago. I find that confusing since the mayor of Chicago is Rahm Emanuel. Remember him? Mr. Gun Control himself! Mr' Emanuel was the architect of the CLinton Administration so called assault weapons ban in 1994.
The other fact of interest is that Chicago ranks dead last in the United States for firearm related prosecutions. What does Emanuel do? He calls for more gun laws.

It really makes one wonder if the Liberals really want to reduce "gun violence" (which, by the way, has been reducing regularly since the passage of concealed carry legislation in all 50 states) or do they just want to disarm the populace. Well, there are a few who wonder.

And you, Patrick, might read what Supremce Court Justice Scalia said about the right to keep and bear arms. You might also want to read the decisions in the Dred Scott case, the McDonald case, and the Heller case.

First thing, April, you obviously have never tried to purchase a firearm. If you had, you would know that a back ground check is conducted, under federal law, on anyone purchasing a firearm from a licensed dealer. Now, there is an issue because the background check is only as good as the information that gets entered into an individual's background records. Which leads me to point two. If you want to point fingers at someone, this has nothing to do with anything the NRA or the Republicrats have done. The for the faulty background information lies at the base of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Obamacare will fix all that. If you don't believe it, just ask Obama.He put it out on the Internet and you can't put anything that's not true on the Internet.

Letter to the editor: Final straw?

You do know that the regulations for buying an AR platform rifle are already tighter than they are for buying fertilizer, right?

Because those pesky firearms just fly around and bite people all by themselves.

Letter to the editor: Final straw?

I wonder what the Libs would blame had the Islamic Jihadist, who fully intended to murder people, driven a Ryder truck full of fertilizer and ammonium nitrate into the the club and detonated it. Would they demand reasonable Ryder truck rental legislation, tighter controls on fertilizer, or banning ammonium nitrate? Or would they place blame where it truly belongs?
