LTE: A double standard on gun control issue

August 4, 2005 Toledo Blade Why do those in Ohio's Legislature who support Second Amendment rights always get labeled as "doing the NRA's bidding," but those who support gun control are somehow doing it for the people? Why the double standard? Does The Blade also scapegoat and stereotype NAACP, NOW, or any other liberal groups like it does the NRA? Would The Blade also accept the argument of...

LTE: All amendments merit vigilant protection

August 04, 2005 Columbus Dispatch Why is it that The Dispatch fairly seeps righteous indignation when defending The New York Times writer who chose jail over revealing a source but then lauds the assault weapons ban? I agree with The Dispatch that protecting the First Amendment, freedom of the press, is part of protecting our country and all it stands for. I am not a member of the National Rifle...

Editorial: Toronto's mayor on a wild gun chase

Last week, the mayor of the City of Toronto, Ontario (Canada) decided that he could shift the blame for a recent spate of gun violence in his city off of himself by blaming America. In a (Canada) National Post story entitled "Shootings leave Toronto bloody", it is the sub-heading which takes the cake: Mayor blames lax U.S. gun laws after day of gunplay . The story quoted Mayor David Miller...

My Victim Zone Encounter
