Failed law cost $2 billion up north

Failed law cost $2 billion up north

To the Editor: A recent letter mentioned Canada spending $10 million on failed gun laws. In fact, it was over $2 billion.

Call for gun control misguided

Call for gun control misguided

To the Editor: A writer to this page recently said “gun control is the solution,” along with his opinion of second amendment supporters.

Gun control is not an extreme view

Gun control is not an extreme view

To the Editor: I’m tired of being considered an extremist because I support gun control—major gun control.  Let me ask you, “Why do we even need guns?” There was a time when gun ownership made some sense— when people needed them to provide food or protection for themselves and their families or for the common […]

Endorsements for sale?

Endorsements for sale?

To the Editor: I find it very questionable that your newspaper ( and I use the word loosely ) endorsed Colleen Busch the same day that candidate purchased a half page advertisement. You also withheld an endorsement mailed to your staff on behalf of the other candidate. Did Mr. Stevenson need to take a half […]
