    I wonder what that 'writer' would scream about if the government took away his 'right' to write...then toss him into a cell.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    I am most humbled by your positive responses to my rebuttal.
    We in VA are very proud of our guaranteed gun rights, and we take every opportunity to defend them from attack and to educate the general population..
    Lastly, I want to let you all know that I was a “blackshoe”, a.k.a. ship driver, not an aviator.”

    Thanks,
    Dave

    My bad on the MOS. OS

    Wow, put all of my thoughts on the subject into a succinct paragraph-outstanding.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Re: “Reason fails in the gun debate,” editorial Feb. 7: The first five words of your editorial told me everything I needed to know about what was coming: “Why should anyone be allowed …” The writer’s underlying precept seems to be that government “allows” us to engage in activities. He seems dumfounded that government continues to “allow” us to purchase guns and ammunition magazines and to consume alcohol while openly carrying firearms. He cannot conceive of any rational reason to “allow” us to do these things.
    Might I suggest that the writer take a moment to reread the Preamble to the Constitution? It is “We The People” who “allow” government to limit our activities within a strict set of rules. If the activity falls outside of that strict set of rules, it is none of government’s business. Government is instituted by The People not to create and confer fundamental rights; it is instituted to protect those rights which are guaranteed by the Constitution.
    Thomas Jefferson understood this with great clarity. Why cannot your editorial writer?

    It took them a week, but there it was this morning with only minor editing. There was a balancing LTE next to it, which probably explains the delay.
