June 1, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Ban assault weapons! They have no purpose other than killing. Please don’t recite the Second Amendment. This is not 1776; this is 2022. Children and adults are being murdered on a regular basis, and the instrument of death is the automatic rifle in the hands of anyone who can pay… Read story

Letter: We can shape the future

May 31, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor
