Your Views: Gun laws can’t protect us from insane killers

This is in response to Jim Scharnagel's letter from March 20 about the Second Amendment being meant for militias and not armed civilians.

Your Views: Second Amendment was meant for militias, not armed civilians

The National Rifle Association falls back on the Second Amendment as justification for owning firearms. This is an anachronism that has persisted from the framing of the Constitution up through the present.

Your Views: Biggest danger from high CO2 levels is political

I am so tired of my intelligence being insulted by the vacuous political and pseudo-science class. For the claims of the global warming cabal to be true, thinking people must put aside all common sense. The premise of the global warming theory is that carbon dioxide is a dangerous gas.

Your Views: Better lighting on boats would boost lake safety

I have been a boater since age 14. Now 66, I have seen just about everything that can happen while boating.

Your Views: Drivers, please stop, use your turn signals at busy crossroads

What is wrong with some drivers? They don't use turn signals or stop at stop signs. Where do they think they are, the land of Dr. Seuss?

Your Views: Help needed for stray animal in need

Animal abuse can go two ways: The people who cause it and the people who look away.

Your Views: Dishonoring military, faith, traditions will haunt our nation

I come from a generation that remembers an America where family was the basis for the training of the minds and hearts of our children. I remember an America that believed in the validity of an almighty God that oversees the affairs of men.

Your Views: Financial travails of one ‘Fred Gov’ may seem familiar

Hello, my name is "Fred Gov" and some of the people I work with are saying my financial situation is in trouble. Others say I am fine. Anyway here is my situation.

Your Views: Time for Obama to grow up, lead in budget battle

I have been watching with disgust the growing fear mongering as sequestration looms closer. Now it is only days away and our "campaigner in chief" is either clueless or bored with the whole process to come up with solutions. Instead, he is falling back on his comfort zone: blame Bush, blame the Republicans and hit the road to campaign some more.

Your Views: New fee benefits car dealers

Previous letter writers have pointed out serious flaws in the new vehicle tax reform. These include the never-ending "birthday tax" on those who can't afford to trade in their old car, and the tax-on-tax impact of financing a vehicle.

Your Views: Insurance policy was lost due to poor Hall County fire coverage

Well, it looks like we owe the county commissioners a big thank you. I just received notice that my homeowner's insurance will not be renewed because "... the existing fire department service is inadequate." It was rated in the worst category. In the words of my longtime insurance agent, "basically it means they get there in time to stop the fire from spreading to other houses."

Your Views: Public media doesn’t provide the whole truth

First I would like to thank our newspaper because it seems reasonably well balanced. Among others, they offer Roberts and King for a liberal view and Sowell and Krauthammer for a conservative view of our country.

Your Views: Vehicle title ‘fee’ is really a tax on borrowed money

In the article on vehicle tax reform, state Sen. Butch Miller says the new title fee is a part of a larger reform package designed to cut taxes. There are only four ways for governments to collect money: taxes, fees, civil penalties or criminal penalties. Individuals have only two sources of funds for paying these: income and borrowing.

Your Views: Atlanta can make streets safer by taking guns from criminals

I saw on the Channel 2 news the other day that some African-American leaders in Atlanta were protesting at gun shops against the manufacturing of guns saying, "they intentionally flood the streets with guns to kill our young people."

Your Views: Gun laws should focus on actual cause of deaths

In his column "Ga. leaders push for more guns" in The Times on Wednesday, Tom Crawford claims Sen. Bill Jackson, of Martinez was mistaken in some remarks he made.

Pope calls for a conversion of our hearts

Concerning climate change, Pope Francis' stance in his Encyclical is very clear. He stated, "A very solid scientific consensus indicates that we are presently witnessing a disturbing warming of the climatic system," and "scientific studies indicate that most global warming is due to the great concentration of greenhouse gases released mainly as a result of human activity. Climate change is a global problem with grave implications."

County needs to focus on justice, not just low taxes

I wanted to attend the Hall County budget meetings but couldn't. This is what I would have said:

LGBT coalition shouldn’t force its agenda on the rest of us

The 2 percent, or less, of our population identified as LGBT are not being picked on. Rather, their bullying is being resisted. Nobody cares what other people are doing relationally in the privacy of their homes (no bomb building, please). We do care how our children are educated and about our Biblical values such as sanctity of marriage.

Brother salutes columnist's salute to dad

I have lots of words regarding Dick's column regarding our dad, but think only one is appropriate: Amen!

Charleston tragedy is a command to teach kindness

Last week, our country and our community received a command, not merely a call. We must reach deep inside our hearts and heads to find ways to reach people before they become unreachable, such as the young man responsible for the tremendous tragedy in Charleston.

Giving and sharing come in the form of welcome $2 bills

My thanks go out to the dapper, white-haired gentleman who gave my grandsons two special gifts Sunday morning in the IHOP restaurant in Gainesville.

Police deserve our respect, not scorn

Charles Sherwood is 150 percent correct! The police do a great job with dignity and professionalism. Someone should ask Joan King if she would look forward to going to a job where a crazy terrorist wanted to behead her just because of the color of the uniform she wore? Or where her life was on the line every second of every shift for relatively little pay? Or if there were no police and she had to fend for herself?

Your Views: Roosevelt Square doesn’t need fixing

The other day I read a small notice that our illustrious city council was considering "improving the square." I had lunch at the square the other day, sat outside and had a nice time just looking. I found the square looked very nice - nothing needs to be done.

Your Views: Instead of politicizing Jesus, why not just follow his way of living?

Just like the Roman emperor Constantine did 1800 years ago, the "powers that be" continue to politicize Jesus for their own personal gain. And Christians continue to be vulnerable. Traditional theology hasn't helped much.

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.
