Lawrence man faces federal prosecution for stolen handgun

Ok, you can go door to door and ask for everyone's guns and we can start over. Please compare apples to apples and not laws in the US versus those in Europe. I am sorry that FACTS in this country destroy your case but you cant ignore them just because they show real stats versus laws in jolly old England. I believe this country was founded by pilgrims who were escaping tyranny in England. You can't pick and choose which facts to use and ones to ignore. You can ask native Americans how turning over their guns worked for them if you like. Or you can accept that it didn't work out so well for them. This article is about a gun owner who reported the gun stolen and now the felon is headed to prison!

Please review gun violence in Houston versus Chicago 2012... By your theory cold weather causes gun crime.

Opinion: U.S. must do more to fight radical Islam

Mother on the watch list, felony warrants in this country, and one brother already interviewed by the FBI and nothing happen... that is until the explosion that was a direct attack against innocent people for no reason. Syria is now accused of using chemical weapons on their own people and the world watches on television, he murders and makes his own people starve and everyday we watch... You didn't see radical Muslims complaining in the 80's when the United States was giving them weapons, didn't see them complaining the US stepped in to help Kuwait from being taken off the map, and I never saw kids running when soldiers give them water and food... Radicals exist for every religion all over the world. The radical Muslims (extremely rare) live and think that Christians are the devil, infidels, root of evil, and dirty because we touch with our left hand. They believe when they die taking a few with them that they will get virgins (think 72) and live in paradise.. these radical groups teach people views much like Mormon extremist brain wash their followers, or David Koresh (typo?), Jim Jones, and Manson... The difference is that radical Muslims (again very rare) use explosives and attack for the purpose of killing innocent people, ruining lives, and causing chaos... Unfortunately there is not a lot that can be done other than try to prevent the next one and hope.. the FBI/Military/CIA/ATF/Homeland defense/NSA/and informants have to right 100% of the time, terrorist only have to be right once...

It's bad for the 1000's who aren't working... My point is that there are better stories to report besides this or 'man punched in face on Mass'... The current financial spot and spending was just one example of news that could be reported.

Never once asked for anything special... Just ask that when your job is to report news you report news. Not a biased opinion, not ignoring stories that may not look good, just report the news and let people decide what's right, not a reporter or a paper with an agenda. That must sound crazy.

It would be nice for a "news" paper to publish all types of news and not one side. I'm not a Brownback fan at all. I am republican, that doesn't mean I'm pro-life or anti-gay marriage. News is news regardless of party lines, or at least it should be. Clearly in Lawrence it is not.
