Letter to the editor: Hypocrisy showing?

Actually Steve, I call them rational, non-hysterical people who understand that guns are not the problem, people are. They are not trying to put a band-aid on an evisceration. They don't blame inanimate objects for the actions of people who commit crimes. Do you blame a hammer for the shoddy workmanship of the carpenter? Do you really believe if guns all went away that people killing people would stop? I truly doubt you are stupid enough to believe that. There are major problems in the United Stated right now, but guns are not one of them.

5 Dallas officers slain, deadliest day for police since 9/11

Once again, guilty verdicts have been dispensed before all of the facts are known. If they are cops, they are guilty! Maybe they are and maybe they aren't. Let the investigations run their respective courses before the trials begin. One would think people would have learned that from Ferguson. But I forget, that was a cover up.

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?
