Bad idea

This is in response to the lame brain who wants teachers to have guns in the classroom. What about the child who chances on it and shoots a classmate? As the gunman charges into the classroom, shooting off rounds, how far would the teacher get taking her weapon out of the drawer or the cabinet? Maybe the writer would just like to have armed soldiers teaching our kids from now on.

Why the need?

Regarding The News-Sun article about local gun owners and law-abiding citizens. Why do law-abiding citizens need to have a semi-automatic weapon? I don’t understand that. What do we really need a semi-automatic weapon for?

Too many murders

Local man murdered in robbery attempt. Girl’s boyfriend kills her mother with a baseball bat. Man kills wife and three children because they’re an inconvenience. Mass murder in Arizona and Texas. Incarceration is not a deterrent. We need to execute people for murder.

Write tickets

To our aldermen of Waukegan. If you’re looking for money, then why aren’t the policemen out checking for vehicle stickers? In my neighborhood, there’s 11 cars without stickers and nobody seems to bother them.
