Your Views: Gun limits would require different ways of self-defense

After reading all of the last three opinions concerning gun control and expressing mine to Joan King, I have decided that the best way to combat the control problem is as follows:

Your Views: We should not trust others for our security

I normally do not read Joan King, but the headline "More guns don't make us safer" on Tuesday drew me in. She wrote: "There are better ways to protect your home and loved ones than sleeping with a .45 under your pillow."

Your Views: Better diet is part of moral imperative for all Americans

Michelle Obama states that adding a single glass of water daily will bring improved health. Restaurants serve us, and we eat, fried Oreos, roasted watermelon, breaded fried pickles, overloaded potatoes, overloaded plates and decadent desserts. Our society's morals resemble those of Rome's Caligula. Hannah Montana has become a woman no decent man could proudly call his wife and decadence is an accepted word for Americans.

Your Views: Navy Yard deaths show why it’s easier to hire temp workers

It occurs to me that we as employers have limited ability under the laws to inquire into a potential employee's background, etc. and therefore some employers have turned to temp agencies to act as a clearinghouse for potential employees.

Your Views: Get an estimate first from your contractor before work is done

Recently I hired a Gainesville area electrician to look at a porch light that keeps burning out. Because I had used him before, I agreed to a service charge plus parts, if any. As it turned out there was really nothing wrong, but a small adjustment was made to the socket where someone had turned the light bulb too tightly, bending a contact.

Your Views: Mountain Players created many memories over their 21 years

It has been a fun time working along with the Georgia Mountain Players in the musical productions that we have performed for 21 years. Those are memories that will last forever.

Your Views: Times staffer should have backed off

In reference to The Times' photographer, Nat Gurley, charged with obstruction: I am sure Gurley was just attempting to do his job. However, the law enforcement people were also attempting to do their job.

Your Views: Obama’s policy in Syria is like Bush’s in Iraq

It's been suggested that Russia might help President Barack Obama by corralling chemical weapons in Syria and placing them under guard. We should remember this happened in Iraq before we invaded and toppled Saddam Hussein. After Gulf War I, all known weapons of mass destruction there were gathered and placed in locked storage.

Your Views: Missiles fired on Syria would only add to people’s misery

It is unbelievable that our national leaders are so politically motivated and lacking the good judgment they should have regarding the Syrian revolution.

Your Views: Carter kept a promise to help deliver report for project

I noticed where Don Carter has retired as Department of Natural Resources commissioner and I would like to share a very pleasant courtesy he did for me. I have never met him, nor do I know him, but he sure helped me when I needed help.

Your Views: Congress needs to declare war, not president, says Constitution

RE: In response to Thursday's letter from Bruce Hallowell: It is not the duty of the president, not does he have the power to declare war. One has only to look at the Constitution (Article 1, Section 8.11).

Why can’t we disagree and still respect others’ views?

I have to admit, I'm bemused by the slogan that the homosexual lobby has adopted for its recent court victory, "Love wins." I'm confused because the most vocal proponents of same-sex marriage seem to be extremely un-loving as I understand love: "Love is patient, love is kind ... it keeps no record of wrongs ... Love bears all things, endures all things."

Removing Confederate flag an insult to Southern history

In response to the current controversy concerning the Confederate battle flag, I affirm that it is an insult to the memory of our ancestors and an affront to my culture and to Southern history, that this precious emblem be removed from public life. As a descendant of men who fought under that banner, I take it as an indictment of who I am that the flag should now be considered racist and indecent.

Let God be judge of morality, leave it out of our laws

I write in response to the letters of Paul Barnes and Duane Jones in your July 11 edition. They write of their opinion on the Supreme Court decision to do away with the law that made it illegal for gays and lesbians to wed.

Congress needs plan to rescue Social Security

Social Security and entitlement reform is an issue that will assure seniors that they will receive the benefits of hard work. Here in Northeast Georgia, we older Americans are watching closely what the U.S. Congress, especially U.S. Rep. Doug Collins and Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson do to preserve Social Security this session.

Nation founded on faith has lost its way, led astray by its leaders

I believe it's obvious to most intelligent and observant people that Christians and our faith are under heavy persecution, not only in America, but on a worldwide scale never seen before. America is faced with an almost overwhelming tsunami of woes that it seems hopeless to even hope that we can overcome and prevail as a nation.

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.
