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: Stranger’s kindness was appreciated

On Jan. 15, my cousins and I were having lunch. After finishing our meal, the waitress handed us our bill. As we began to pay, she said the bill had been paid by the gentleman sitting at the table next to us. We were overwhelmed, and our copy of the bill had a note from the gentleman that said "God Bless You."

Your Views: Background checks won’t mean much to someone breaking law

While the shootings in the school in Connecticut were a terrible catastrophe, the liberal news media is silent on the thousands of abortions preformed every year in this country. I guess those babies don't count.

Your Views: US citizens never could fully arm themselves against government forces

Reading letters on gun control published after the Sandy Hook school shooting, it appears conservatives blame that event on everything but guns. Some insist the Sandy Hook shooting can be attributed directly to legalized abortion, the elimination of prayer in school and teaching the theory of evolution as science. Then they speak out against liberals who would dare exploit this tragedy in order to serve a political agenda. How ironic.

Your Views: Only authoritarian governments want to disarm the populace

I wasn't going to weigh in on this one, but I can't help myself. There are too many reasonable people who are buying into the liberal lexicon.

Your Views: Americans must conquer fears, demand better

I often find myself wondering how the next chapter of our nation's history will read. Will it tell of a prosperous society, where the citizens embraced freedom? Or will it read like the final chapters of Gibbon's "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire?" I pray the former but am given to the latter at the moment.

Sheriff’s Office has enforced immigration program fairly

I am writing in response to an article in The Times on Sunday, "Feds' immigration program extended," regarding the Obama administration extending the federal 287(g) immigration program. Since the article focused on the opinions and misrepresentations of a local attorney and illegal immigrant advocate, I believe it is important to set the record straight.

Your Views: Pray for those who clean up the water from Lake Lanier

I found the Jan. 7 article in The Times, "Church commemorates Epiphany" with a blessing of Lake Lanier somewhat interesting. However, in my opinion, attempts to bless Lake Lanier may be misdirected.

Your Views: Lives never led are a tragedy, harmful to US

Jan. 22 will be the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade. In this period some 55 million babies have been aborted. Abortion is like an evil, never-receding tsunami that has swept through our land, leaving in its wake enormous dissension and heartache. Unfortunately, in the next four years we will see a ramped-up version of this holocaust.

Your Views: Left exploits tragedy rather than focusing on moral decay

The senseless, insane killing of 20 innocent children and six adults in Newtown, Conn., is beyond our understanding. It violates every ethical and moral standard that we have held dear. Our hearts and sympathies go out to the victims families and the residents of Newtown.
