Your Views: Proper firearm training can help stop those who commit crimes

Gun safety can be an issue for people who are against guns. They don't own one, and that's fine, but the media shouldn't scare them into never owning one.

Your Views: Simple math can solve how earth’s population grew

A letter to The Times on Dec. 27 asked the question: How could two people produce today's population of more than 7 billion people in 9,000 or so years? Simple conservative arithmetic reveals the answer.

Your Views: It’s time to end ad valorem taxes for those with older vehicles

Thank you for clarifying the information about the new motor vehicle title fee. However, one fact about the fee has been swept under the political rug ever since it was ramrodded through the legislature with no apparent thought about how it would affect every resident: The annual ad valorem tax continues without relief for anyone who can't buy a car, whether new or used, beginning in 2013.

Your Views: Election reform needed to level the playing field

The recent article about buying and selling our elections was right on. What we now have as an election system is a farce. It is a playground for special-interest groups, and consequently, we get an electorate that is beholden to big money and not to the rest of us.

Your Views: Children here in US also need adoptive homes

I have sympathy for children who will be affected by the change in Russian law concerning their adoption by Americans. However, attention should be drawn to our own children who languish in foster care waiting for their forever families. Now is the time to take action for these precious kids!

Your Views: Beliefs or no, you can’t deny scientific facts

Trevor Thomas, who believes chickens and dinosaurs were "created" simultaneously, was back on his anti-evolution bandwagon in his Dec. 18 column. He should stick to writing about politics and such where he seems to adhere more closely to facts rather than continue to attack proven scientific knowledge.

Your Views: A better plan is needed to manage Lake Lanier water

As a homeowner on Lake Lanier and an Atlanta resident, I find the rapid decline in Lanier's level this year extremely frustrating. I am sympathetic to the corps' operating guidelines as it relates to our precious resource. The corps, like it or not, must supply water downstream to maintain water quality, navigational abilities and (gasp) protect endangered species. I do, however, see a lack of common sense being applied in many respects. Several major complaints come to mind every time I cross the river or look at my dock in Atlanta:

Your Views: President has failed to lead, fulfill promises

Mr. President: A lot of us aren't as foolish as the people who re-elected you. It's outrageous that you've been given a second term considering your abysmal record. Here are just a few examples:

Your Views: Time to hold our leaders responsible for DC gridlock

Are you tired of the fiscal cliff discussions? What are we the taxpayers paying for anyway?

Your Views: Banning firearms is the act of a tyrannical government

It mystifies me to no end to how blind and naive people in general and our leaders in Washington, in particular, can be on some issues. Take for example the supposed ban on small arms in America that so many want to impose on the American people.

Your Views: Guns aren’t the issue; shunning our religion is

I attended a public high school where students brought guns and ammunition to school and shot recreationally in the schools manual arts building over the noon hour and after classes were dismissed.

Your Views: Violent incident in Connecticut raises many vital questions

Having read and listened to lots of commentary this past weekend, our response to this tragic event should probably be a complicated "all of the above."

Your Views: President Obama should support lives of all innocent children

I read the full text of President Barack Obama's address at the vigil for Sandy Hook shooting victims, the little children and the teachers in Newtown, Conn. The speech was beautifully written and I'm sure heartfelt by the president who delivered it and brought comfort to all of us who have been affected by this.

Your Views: Finding scapegoats doesn’t change our political reality

On reading the Dec. 7 letter from Sharon Fowler, I see that recrimination and political hit pieces keep on coming from the angry right. The context of Fowler's letter seems to infer that people wanting free money and government handouts are the reason President Barack Obama was re-elected.

Your Views: The real ‘War on Christmas’ is waged against poor Jesus served

This time of year we begin hearing about the "War on Christmas," as the nonreligious seek to enforce the constitutional separation between church and state. Others talk about a "War on Thanksgiving" as early shopping begins to infringe on family time and Thanksgiving time. But there's another war far more displeasing to God, at least according to Jesus.

Your Views: Area restaurants applauded for providing free meals to veterans

Many thanks should be extended to all the local restaurants who provided free dinners to veterans on Veterans Day. Such a positive, supportive attitude only serves to strengthen the community and the country. A week later, I was impressed to see a restaurant in Buford extend the honor by providing literally hundreds of free dinners to local veterans.

Your Views: Health care works fine without federal government in the way

This is in response to Joan King's recent attempt to display her superior wisdom. I thought her forte was climate change, but now she's scolding us all for not embracing President Barack Obama's nightmare health care plan. Where's she been this past year?

Your Views: Columnist misread how US voters feel

Reply to Clarence Lusane column of Nov. 11: He is correct when he says the election was not a mandate for a Republican agenda. I disagree that it happened because of a "pervasive anti-Obama drumbeat" or "incessant Republican pounding." It happened because the American people are mad.

Your Views: Reverse brain drain; send immigrants back home

According to President Barack Obama, the citizens of the United States are not exceptional. Also, he claims we are no better than any other country on this planet.

Your Views: Law enforcement needs to clamp down on teen speeders

I have a 16-acre sheep farm on Coker Road. One recent evening, a 16-year-old boy hit my fence driving 80 mph, as he told police. He and his friend, who was also 16, were going home from East Hall High School.

Your Views: Traffic light is needed at risky Hall intersection

On Nov. 10, three men, one of them a Hall County Sheriff's deputy, were injured in a crash at Spout Springs Road and Union Circle. Thankfully none of the men suffered anything worse than a minor injury. But anyone driving in this area with any regularity knows how dangerous this intersection can be. The fact that there are not more accidents at this intersection is astounding.

Your Views: US policy of intervention only perpetuates capitalist goals

In her recent letter, Mary Young seems to refer to the 9-11 attacks during the Bush administration as if they constitute a justification for the war in Iraq. Neither Saddam nor Iraq was involved in those attacks. She also attempts to justify the war by pointing to past history, including Saddam's use of gas against Iraqi Kurds. The U.S. sold Saddam that gas. I have to wonder, who does she think the U.S. intended the gas to be used on? As suppliers of WMD, we are complicit in that crime.

Your Views: Obama in China; dictators squared

President Barack Obama left his domestic woes behind to take a foreign policy trip to China this week. He met with the leader of China in a private meeting to talk about Chinese-U.S. relations and trade policies. The American press was allowed total access to the meeting and to take photographs of the occasion. It was interesting to see pictures of the world's most powerful dictator standing next to some Chinese guy.

Your Views: No tradition is more vital than family

Family is the most important organization in time (on this earth) or in eternity. God Himself organized the first family on earth. He created all of us as His spiritual children and thus His spiritual family. Family is very important to Him. "What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."
