Your Views: Chambliss won’t be missed

Good to see Saxby Chambliss go. Just like most of Congress, he is useless. But he will have a good retirement paid for by We The People.

Your Views: More control over guns won’t stop criminals or end violence

On a recent editorial page, a writer asks: Why do they (gun owners) keep hiding behind the Second Amendment? The writer added that, when those words were written, our forefathers could not possibly have envisioned our world today.

Your Views: Constitution gives us right to bear arms, not a privilege

I read John Stockard's letter to the editor Wednesday with disappointment. Comparing our Second Amendment right to bear arms to getting a driver's license is just plain wrong. Owning guns and protecting ourselves is a right, not a privilege like driving.

Your Views: Chairman wrong to limit speaking time at meeting

Last Thursday, the Hall County Board of Commissioners convened. There was a large crowd there that night to voice opposition to a rezoning proposal. Twenty minutes was given to each side to speak.

Your Views: Some limits on gun ownership, training are within reason

Why do some gun owners come so completely unglued when you mention adding or changing gun controls? And why do they keep hiding behind the Second Amendment?

Your Views: Chambliss’ smear of Cleland in ’02 race remains unforgivable

So Sen. Saxby Chambliss has announced that he will not seek re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2014, citing "frustration" with partisan politics in Washington.

Your Views: Gun control ideas go against reality and Constitution

In recent days, there have been two letter writers who have expressed that the Second Amendment shouldn't be more important than the others and that semi-auto weapons and high capacity magazines should be banned.

In response to Jon Schwartz's letter concerning limitation of the Second Amendment, he, like many others, passed over the original intent of the amendment.

Your Views: Clinton showed arrogance in testimony on Benghazi attack

Today, a U.S. Senate committee heard from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton concerning the deaths of four Americans at the hands of terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.

Your Views: Changing name of Friendship Road ignores its history

I am writing in reference to Monday's article about the idea of anyone wanting to change the name of Friendship Road. This road has history, with the Friendship Baptist Church being No. 1.

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: Humankind is hardly perfect in its rebellion

I write this letter to pose further understanding after Tuesday's column by Joan King. Ms. King is a thoughtful and generally cogent writer. I read her column faithfully and remain in strong respect for her consistent revelations concerning the ongoing corruption in our nuclear plant construction process.

Your Views: Staff at assisted living facility responds well to frozen pipes

I am the director of nursing for Homestead Hospice of Athens and we have patients who are residents at Summers Landing Assisted living facility in Gainesville. It was a complete coincidence that I was visiting the facility at the exact moment that some frozen pipes in the ceiling burst Jan. 8. I wanted to write a letter to the editor in attempt to recognize the staff of Summers Landing. They happened to be having a staff meeting at the same time and that meant there were more employees in the building than usual.

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.
