Vote When It Matters The Most

Published: May 08, 2013 at 12:00 am
To the Editor: After 12/14, Newtown was the closest, most kind, loving and generous community. That has helped my family and other families to begin the healing process, but now we are in the dreaded and divisive budget season. Security is a topic that I have thought about endlessly. On 12/13,

The Legality Of The Right To Bear Arms

Published: May 02, 2013 at 12:00 am
To the Editor: What is it which makes some people and judges believe that the Second Amendment in our Constitution gives everybody the right to bear arms?
