Your Views: Second Amendment isn’t all that special; it can, should be limited

Why are some constitutional amendments more important than others?

Your Views: Ban large-magazine weapons, then buy them for law officers

It is my hope that Congress will pass a law banning the civilian possession of any firearm that fires more than one bullet with one squeeze of the trigger. I hope this is what they mean when they talk about banning assault rifles. I do not need a gun that fires 900 bullets a minute to protect my home.

Your Views: Falcons have reason to be proud

We almost won the NFC Championship. That's not bad news. That's good news. Look, name another team with a better season record. You can't win them all. Our team is great with great things to come.

Your Views: Proper safety precautions can prevent deadly building fires

Remember Smokey the Bear's slogan, "Only you can prevent forest fires!" In the wake of a host of preventable building fires, including in the Greater Atlanta area, a school fire and a house fire which took four lives from the same family due to a surviving child having played with a lighter, it is very appropriate to add, "Only you can prevent building fires."

Your Views: Stranger’s kindness was appreciated

On Jan. 15, my cousins and I were having lunch. After finishing our meal, the waitress handed us our bill. As we began to pay, she said the bill had been paid by the gentleman sitting at the table next to us. We were overwhelmed, and our copy of the bill had a note from the gentleman that said "God Bless You."

Your Views: Riverside coach helped soccer grow in county

Bob Leventhal died last week at the age of 88. With his passing, the sports community has lost a part of our soccer history and a friend.

Your Views: Background checks won’t mean much to someone breaking law

While the shootings in the school in Connecticut were a terrible catastrophe, the liberal news media is silent on the thousands of abortions preformed every year in this country. I guess those babies don't count.

Your Views: US citizens never could fully arm themselves against government forces

Reading letters on gun control published after the Sandy Hook school shooting, it appears conservatives blame that event on everything but guns. Some insist the Sandy Hook shooting can be attributed directly to legalized abortion, the elimination of prayer in school and teaching the theory of evolution as science. Then they speak out against liberals who would dare exploit this tragedy in order to serve a political agenda. How ironic.

Your Views: Only authoritarian governments want to disarm the populace

I wasn't going to weigh in on this one, but I can't help myself. There are too many reasonable people who are buying into the liberal lexicon.

Your Views: Americans must conquer fears, demand better

I often find myself wondering how the next chapter of our nation's history will read. Will it tell of a prosperous society, where the citizens embraced freedom? Or will it read like the final chapters of Gibbon's "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire?" I pray the former but am given to the latter at the moment.

Your Views: Conservatives need to reassert control of broadcast media

How do conservatives get the broadcast media to hold this administration accountable?

Sheriff’s Office has enforced immigration program fairly

I am writing in response to an article in The Times on Sunday, "Feds' immigration program extended," regarding the Obama administration extending the federal 287(g) immigration program. Since the article focused on the opinions and misrepresentations of a local attorney and illegal immigrant advocate, I believe it is important to set the record straight.

Your Views: We can’t toss out Constitution on a hysterical whim

I want to communicate my position on expectations of our elected officials' responsibility to defend the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Your Views: Pray for those who clean up the water from Lake Lanier

I found the Jan. 7 article in The Times, "Church commemorates Epiphany" with a blessing of Lake Lanier somewhat interesting. However, in my opinion, attempts to bless Lake Lanier may be misdirected.

Your Views: Lives never led are a tragedy, harmful to US

Jan. 22 will be the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade. In this period some 55 million babies have been aborted. Abortion is like an evil, never-receding tsunami that has swept through our land, leaving in its wake enormous dissension and heartache. Unfortunately, in the next four years we will see a ramped-up version of this holocaust.

Your Views: Tourism industry can get creative to offset extra fee

I am a little disappointed in the article titled "New fee upsets tourism industry." The article itself was well written and worthy of the front page. However, the content of those interviewed and their titles was a little disturbing.

Your Views: Obama’s push for tyranny is a right-wing plan

Regarding Thomas Day's recent letter, I wonder if he expects readers to buy what he's selling. Day speaks of tyranny, saying President Barack Obama has "come closer to establishing tyranny in the United States than at any other time in our history."

Your Views: Addictive behavior can be turned into community service

I am an addict. I take all things I like to excess. I am now 45 years old and a full two seconds away from a bad decision, instead of one second like when I was younger.

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to offer congratulations to Attorney Daniel A. Summer of Summer & Summer in Gainesville on receiving the 2014 Indigent Defense Award, presented by the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Your views: More questions should be asked about moving Lanier Tech

Am I the only one that is shaking their head and asking "where did the idea come from to relocate Lanier Tech?"

Your Views: Smithgall’s support for the arts sets our community apart

Gainesville-Hall County, with the Northeast Georgia Medical System, is one of Georgia's prominent medical centers. With Lake Lanier, it is one of Georgia's prominent recreation hubs. With the poultry research laboratory and a high number of poultry industry businesses, it is one of the state's agricultural centers. With the changing seasons in the Gainesville section of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the area will become a prominent center for celebrating spring, summer, fall and even winter.

Your Views: US government is held hostage by a tyranny of the minority

The recent celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Selma march was a wonderful event to remind us of the progress that has been made since that event. One unfortunate event was Jesse Jackson's comments decrying the tyranny of the majority over the minority. It is clear by his remarks that he neither understands the meaning of tyranny nor does he understand our form of government.

Your Views: Who’s going to fly our plane? Rice would be the ideal pilot

I know the souls of those who went down in the plane in France are in heaven, with the exception of one. Folks, we are also on the next plane heading the same way, only we have one thing in our favor: The door to the control cabin is open and desperately in need of a pilot.

Your Views: Series on foster child care opened eyes to a serious issue

On more than one occasion, I have taken pen to paper to offer my criticism of your newspaper. It is expected that we subscribers will do that. When a newspaper does something that I feel is commendable, I will also offer my praise as well as extending my subscription another quarter.
