Subject: Just Another Lonely Old Man . . .

Time was, in one of Chatham county’s small towns, there was an eighty five year old man that rode around on a motorized scooter. We’ll call him Chuck. Chuck’s scooter had all the accessories that it could accommodate. A big wire basket on the handlebars. Headlights and tail lights. Reflectors and deflectors. Pouch bags on the back and a wire that carried a small American flag high in the air.

Ms. Crowell’s remarks about a firearm friendly community are distorted and biased

In response to: firearm friendly community?

While I firmly believe that domestic violence is a tragedy, Ms. Crowell’s remarks are distorted and biased. We all own “assault” weapons: guns, baseball bats, cars, golf clubs, kitchen knives, andirons, hammers and fists. The general public has been duped into believing that the gun is to blame. Semi-automatic firearms used by (domestic violence) criminals are branded as “assault weapons” , two words linked with fully automatic “machine guns.” What the general public also doesn’t seem to know is that the automatic “assault rifles” have been banned outside of military use for nearly 75 years by the National Firearms Act of 1934. Semi-automatic firearms have been around for over a hundred years and are owned and lawfully used by millions of law-abiding people.
