LETTER: Mitch McConnell dawdles on gun legislation

I’ll bet my water pistol collection (except my GOP Super Soaker) that if American hero Mitch McConnell had lost a family member in either recent shooting tragedy, the Senate would not shove this issue to the back of the fridge until September, but would instead be on immediate recall with no time off until a firm course of action was implemented.

There is a disgusting vacuum where the leadership should be in this administration, in this country.

As a veteran, I wonder how those on active duty are keeping their morale steady and staying ready to fight. I salute them all as they execute that task alone.

LETTER: When did politics turn into a giant temper tantrum?

I see a lot of people on both sides with “temper tantrums.” How are we to teach our children if they see adults with angry words and demonstrations in the streets?

LETTER: Donald Trump isn’t great …

… but I am seriously considering voting for him next year, if only to prevent some Democratic socialist from being elected.

LETTER: On Baltimore, President Donald Trump and rats

Enough already about the rats. Michael Ramirez, in his Aug. 5 political cartoon, used that topic to get in a swipe against Baltimore and the residents of that large and historic city.

LETTER: Regulating bullets might slow down mass shooters

Instead of taking away guns, let’s regulate the bullets. If you own a gun, handgun or rifle, you can buy only enough bullets for the capacity of the gun.

LETTER: How would huge taxes affect Powerball players?

Most Powerball players hope to win big dollars, probably enough money to never work again. Under Sanders’ or de Blasio’s tax plans, only government would live the dream.
