Reader's View: Like a gun, an SUV can make one nervous
On a syndicated radio show, a substitute guest host from Cincinnati said that a husband and wife were very, very concerned about gun violence. They were worried about their guns. So they put one of their guns on a table, and it sat for a period of time. The gun did not move. Nothing...

National View: 'Stand your ground' abuse shows need to change law
Twenty years ago, Markeis McGlockton almost certainly would be alive, and Michael Drejka would not be living with the accusation that he got away with murder. In 2005, however, Florida created the "stand your ground" law. It was one of Tallahassee's most irresponsible actions. The...

Reader's View: Blame gun operators, not guns
On gun violence: there has never been an instance where a baseball bat or hammer or golf club, on its own volition, attacked and injured or killed someone. The essential, necessary, and most important ingredient in episodes of violence using these apparatuses is an operator. By themselves,...

Reader's View: On guns -- with rights come responsibilities
Marches, protests, and walkouts — largely student-led — are demanding gun control and safety for our schools, homes, and public spaces. There is a pervasive prevalence of fear. Anger is palpable. Politicians remain remarkably reticent. What exactly is "gun control?" (Is...

Reader's View: Tighten security to stop gun violence
What I "heard" from the May 25 letter, "Trump misses irony in gun statements," was an extremely narrow perspective on guns The focus was the school shooting in Texas, which involved a shotgun and revolver. In other words, it didn't involve an AR-15 or bump stocks, etc. There isn't...

Reader's View: Anti-gun commentary was 'misleading'
The March 23 "Local View" column, "Muskets of 1791 a far cry from firepower of today," which compared muskets to today's firepower, included a lot of misleading information — which, unfortunately, many will believe. A .38-caliber handgun is far from a handheld cannon, as the...
