Letters to the Editor

Bump stocks just the beginning?

Editor: Obama’s ATF approval of bump stocks in 2010, which allow semi-automatic rifles to become somewhat a makeshift machine gun. I have to wonder if this might have been a deliberate act in order to enforce stricter gun laws in the future. With legislators wanting to ban the bump stock, if successful, they will have

Gullible

Editor: President Trump’s proposal for comprehensive tax reform was almost immediately dismissed as heartless and impractical by his political opponents. Campus Reform took it upon themselves to try an experiment at George Washington University. The experimenters asked several students about Trump’s tax plan. Of f course, most of the students showed their distaste for the

Thank you MoDot

Editor: Early this morning MoDot put on overlay on Hwy. 39 from Hwy. 54 over to the point of intersection with Hwy. 32 at the west edge of Stockton. They did a beautiful job of resurfacing the roadway but they stopped without striping the roadway for traffic. The job must have been finished about Oct.

Gun Control

Editor: “Cryin’ Jimmy Kimmel” and other left wing celebrities were already pushing for gun control while the dead bodies in Las Vegas were still warm, hardly a moment to share grief for the lives lost. These celebrities like to work on the emotions of us citizens to push their agenda. In my honest opinion, I

Kill the messenger?

Editor: I am shocked and appalled that the Sun would chose to publish a letter to the editor with such bigoted and judgmental commentary toward a group of people. The overall topic of the letter may have been pertinent, but the imbedded message of hate deserves no platform in a reputable publication. Publisher’s note: Mrs.

Remember their motto was, if you tell a lie long enough and often enough,

NFL Protests

Editor: I am in favor of the NFL protests. As much as I dislike them, it is one of the freedoms we are guaranteed under our Constitution. A number of players (over 200) from the teams have taken a knee or have decided not to come out of the locker rooms for the National Anthem.

Editor: As of July of 2017, Chronic Wasting Disease is known to exist in 21 states in the USA in the wild deer population. Mad Cow disease has an official name of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and was reported in Great Britain in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s after they ate beef from infected cows. Indeed

Per our conservation, I am emailing you to follow up on our concerns about the article containing FACTUALLY WRONG information, which could be a serious detriment to your readers. His spelling

Cotton

Editor: An African-American woman attacked Hobby Lobby for selling raw cotton on a stalk. She posted remarks and a picture on Facebook claiming that this reminded her of slavery. Of course, this took off like wildfire among the liberal sites. It’s a shame that one cannot use decorations that might offend someone. The everyday life
