Math tells us that limiting the number of guns sold will have a limiting effect on mass shootings. But given the number of guns in America today, not much of an effect. So the solution, if there is one, lies in a combination of gun limitations, background checks and better mental-health screening and reporting. And those precautions will probably not completely stop mass shootings, just limit them.
Gun nuts heckled the father of one of the children killed in Newtown over his views on guns. That shows their class and character. Disgusting.
Possible Gazette report? Doctors who are reluctant to prescribe painkillers, anti anxiety [pills] and anti depressants because of DEA witch-hunts!
You know, I was thinking about Lance Armstrong and they wanted him to give back his medal he won in the 2000 Olympics. Should the East Germans give back everything they won in the '60s?
My 1 1/2 year old pug mix has been missing from the Green Valley Drive area in St. Albans for more than a week. It is not in her nature to run off. If anyone has any details as to her whereabouts, please contact the number on the posters hung on Green Valley Drive or Lost and Found Dogs-West Virginia at 804-931-6605. Thank you.
It's amazing that we can't get anything printed <t40>...<t$> about the hard issues here at the DuPont Belle plant. Several people have been calling, but the comments are not getting addressed.
I guess when our elected officials give away our country to illegal immigrants, we can have a Spanish gang in every town and have shootouts every night.
I often wonder why the murderous drug Oxycontin was legal and pot wasn't. I guess it's because the pharmaceutical companies and the doctors and the politicians that get money donated to their re-elections don't make as much money off pot as they do Oxycontin, which is the most horrendous drug ever invented. What's up with that? Make pot legal.
Please take Honey Boo Boo off the air. I don't know who is worse, Honey Boo Boo or her mother. Someone should teach the child some manners -- and her mom, too.
Like father, like daughter: Shelley Moore Capito.
Whenever someone is shot, we hear all these cries about gun control. In the morning paper on Monday here, I saw three different stories about people being stabbed. Are we going to hear cries about taking away the knives, too?
