Federal gun bill vote showed Obama was wrong
At the time of this writing, one Boston Marathon bomber has been killed, and I wouldnâ€™t give a shovel of manure for the otherâ€™s future. Reports are that the two young men are refugees from an Islamic region in Russia. If so, is that the thanks we get for giving them asylum?

Obama not living up to America's past
Throughout American history there are examples of men and women facing undeniable death or forthcoming doom. Our history shows that as evil and death smiled upon us, Americans stood up, took a deep breath, and smiled back. Here are but a few examples.

Government really is trying to take your guns
On Feb. 16th, our editor, Sam Pollak, wrote a column titled, "No One Is Coming To Take Your Guns." In my circle of conservative, pro-gun friends, Sam Pollak is a Darth Vader, if not worse! Sam and I will never agree on any political issue, and our most volatile area of disagreement is on firearms, but he is my friend, and I respect a man who puts his name on his opinion for all to see, no matter how wrong he may be.

Cuomo goes too far with gun control
Gov. Cuomo, what have you done? Without the usual three-day debate, a period of input from constituents, you have rammed down the throats of New York's gun owners the most stringent gun control package in the United States. If this law is so "great" and of such benefit, why was it passed so quickly in the dark of night?

Know the facts about guns
Let's get right to the meat of the matter. What are "assault weapons?" They are semi-automatic rifles, meaning one round is fired per trigger pull, and they use a detachable magazine.

NRA is right about armed guards in schools
It is hard to remember so long ago, but at age six, a week or so before Christmas, I'm sure my thoughts were about visiting Grandma, opening presents, trimming the Christmas tree, and just waiting for school to be over. To a 6-year-old, it is unimaginable that your life will someday end. Certainly unimaginable that it will end in school, days before Christmas, surrounded by the safety of caring teachers, and screaming in agony for Mommy and Daddy.

Neither party has the will to cut spending
To Jim Broe and his family: If there is a better man or a better friend, we've yet to meet him. You always said more money can be made, when a Democrat is in the White House. So, now's not the time to be ailing. Get well soon, old friend! God bless you and Joyce.

Romney will start running the country like a business
When was the last time we had a businessman as president of the United States? George W. was in the oil business and owned a ball club, but was he really a businessman? Harry Truman owned a haberdashery in Missouri, but that's not quite the scale I'm talking about.
