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

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: 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: 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: 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.
