Your Views: We can’t toss out Constitution on a hysterical whim

I want to communicate my position on expectations of our elected officials' responsibility to defend the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

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.

Your Views: ‘Gun-free zones’ are an invitation to evil cowards

A terrible and senseless act was committed recently in Connecticut and many young lives were lost as a result. The "knee-jerk" reaction has been that we need to have more gun laws or more strict gun laws. That reaction is completely wrong.

Your Views: Millions for ‘special access’ to inauguration out of place today

After reading the article in Wednesday's Times, "$1M donations wanted for Obama inauguration," I am appalled and so angry. With our country in tremendous debt, Americans hungry and some homeless and Social Security being threatened, how dare President Barack Obama ask for $1 million to have parties? Why spend all this money on some parties?

Your Views: Someone is going to profit from any new laws to limit firearms

Vice President Joe Biden promises gun laws to change. Whether your for it or against it, you can be sure of two things.

Your Views: Gainesville fire, police prompt service is appreciated

Thank you, city of Gainesville. On the evening of Jan. 5, I received a home security call. I got home with two city police cars and a fire truck from Station 1. The police came to check on the motion alarm in my house, and when walking outside my home, they smelled gas.

On behalf of the entire Gainesville City Schools family, we thank the Gainesville and Hall County community for the remarkable support we received during our successful quest for the state Class AAAAA football championship.

Your Views: Sewer rate change was forced on county residents despite opposing voices

At the December meeting of the Hall County Board of Commissioners, three commissioners demonstrated their willingness to continue to strategize behind the scenes and vote as an alliance rather than on the merit of a proposal.

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!
