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. Usually, an "assault rifle" features a black synthetic stock, a pistol grip, a bayonet mount, and a flash suppressor.

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.

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.

Young people today make poor showing as U.S. citizens
The other night, "The O'Reilly Factor" had a feature called "Watters' World."

Blessed is he who is not offended by me
A few weeks ago in our column, we included an old joke about the advantages a tractor has over a woman. We received the following email: "I was offended by your jokes about a 'good woman' in the April 10, 2012 column. This type of humor lacks taste, and unnecessarily offends people. Please do not include this type of humor in your column."

President Obama provides little hope and change
With a little luck and divine providence, my President Barack Obama will be elected again. He certainly deserves another four years.
