  • Your vote counts
  • Banning the military type gun

    The law banning the military type gun should include any gun invented in the future that is near the fire power or exceeds the fire power of the military type guns now in use. 

  • A record worth remembering

    Kentucky’s legislature has never exactly been a beacon of model behavior. I can recall Operation Boptrot, when more than a dozen state legislators were convicted of accepting bribes.

    I don’t suspect that anyone in the 2018 General Assembly will be convicted of criminal activity, which in a way makes what they’ve done legally even more shameful.

  • Quick and easy way isn’t necessarily the right way
  • How much is enough?

    People have differing views on matters concerning our school system in Marion County and I respect different opinions on these issues.

  • Remember in November

    Kentucky Retirement Systems stakeholders are shocked and appalled by the actions of the General Assembly regarding public pensions. Last week, in the space of about nine hours, the majority party produced a 291-page pension bill and voted it out of the House and Senate. Senate Bill 151 awaits Gov. Matt Bevin’s signature.

  • Dear citizen

    Dear citizen,

    “The advantage of being armed…the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…in the several kingdoms of Europe…the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” (James Madison, The Federalist, 46) (p.107, vol.71, firearms news)

    Beware of Federal Bill 5087.

    K.L. Jones

    Bradfordsville,

  • Déjà vu all over again

    I’m so proud and amazed by these children who are protesting and organizing marches to end the gun violence. For me, this is, “Déjà vu, all over again…” (Yogi Bara).

  • Reasonable gun control

    "Solutions to problems are simple, when viewed from their ludicrous extremes" ... when the Constitution was crafted the only long guns were single shot muzzle loaders ... it took an expert 30 seconds to reload ... and by the seventh round, the barrel would likely tighten and it wouldn't be possible to shoot another round. THAT is the weapon that our forefathers envisioned when drafting the Second amendment in 1791.

  • Stop school shootings with your vote

    You had a son or daughter who served a tour of duty in the military. He came home after their tour safe from any harm. Your school-aged child did not survive his school years. He was shot and killed in the sixth grade. This is what we’re seeing today.

    The only way these types of killings will be stopped is by gun laws. The manufacturing of military type guns needs to be outlawed. All of these types of guns in the hands of persons other than law enforcement need to, by law, be turned in.
