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?

50 slain at gay nightclub in Florida, worst mass shooting in US history

You all are aware that an AR platform operates, for all intents and purposes, like a Marlin Model 60 or a Ruger 10-22, each being a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle, right? One pull of the trigger equals one round fired. One can buy a semi-auto rifle in just about any caliber one wants.

This has nothing to do with what firearm was used, it is all about the intentions of someone intent on killing a group of people he hated based on his political doctrine. Don't blame the tool, blame the person who pulled the trigger. But then, when did logic ever account for anything?

Federal appeals court: No right to carry concealed weapons in public

Actually, this decision comes as no surprise. The 9th Circus has been practicing liberal judicial activism for decades. What else would you expect in the home base of San Fran Nan Pelosi.

Opinion: Ryan made wrong choice on Trump

The fact that Trump (and Bush for that matter) just goes to show that people no longer study history. If Trump (or Bush for that matter) were truly like Hitler, both Mr. Pitts and Fred would have already "disappeared".

States dig in against federal directive on transgender bathroom use

So stalls protect us! Good! Last time I checked, there were stalls in both men's and women's restrooms. As you said, lock the door if you're uncomfortable. Works both ways.

So, in other words, Barb, you can't answer the question.

Opinion: Trump should release tax returns

I don't seem to recall mentioning anything about "tax" records. If we are going to demand the release of records, let's release all the records. Your man has yet to do that.

States dig in against federal directive on transgender bathroom use

Can someone please explain to me why a person's "right?" to be confused trumps my mother's right to feel secure and comfortable in a public rest room?

Opinion: Trump should release tax returns

Mr. O'Brien,

Could you please republish your editorial on encouraging President Obama to release his records in 2008?
