As others see it: Grassley fails Iowans
Sen. Chuck Grassley bucked national opinion to make a point. We hope he can live with it. Americans cannot. Poll after poll consistently...

Lawmakers pose restrictions to gun access
ST. PAUL -- Criminals would have a harder time getting guns and law enforcement would have more control over weapons permits in legislative efforts aimed at curbing Minnesota gun violence. A bill by state Sen. Richard Cohen, DFL-St. Paul, would make it easier for law enforcement...

Letter: Guns not responsible for the greatest case of murder
In the Feb. 5 issue of the Daily Globe, I read that Bill Ingebrigtsen believes that "the two greatest mass murders in our country were not committed with guns." The greatest mass murders are happening yet yearly, and daily. Abortion is mass murder. Fetuses are alive and living tissue;...

Letter: Gun control debate doesn't address primary problem
Gun control, gun control, gun control. It seems that's all you hear on the news lately. The anti-gun zealots are pushing for an agenda that will only deprive law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment rights. What they should be doing is addressing the real problem that has been...

Minnesota's gun debate will continue
ST. PAUL -- Gun week in the Minnesota Legislature came and went, but the debate is far from over. A former law enforcement officer, now a senator,...

Letter: More gun control? No way?
In response to Michael Marcotte and his ilk that think the government should be able to have more control over private weapons, I say "fast and furious!" More than 200 of the weapons that Mr. Marcotte wants the government to control were allowed by the government to be bought by...

Letter: No more gun control - plain and simple
As a former sheriff and current state senator, I was sworn to uphold the Constitution of the State of Minnesota and the United States. I take this oath seriously. Unfortunately, it is apparent that some do not. I have noticed Freedom of Speech, under the First Amendment, is continually...

Letter: New rules for guns make sense
"I don't want to be punished because of some looney with a gun!" Have you ever heard the phrase "One bad apple spoils the bunch?" You, Mister or Madam Gun Owner, may not enjoy the legislation that is being presented in federal and state congresses, but you can absolutely thank those...

Letter: Gun registration, background checks won't help
Most of the shootings we hear about are done by angry, unruly young males who may have mental problems and don't know the word "no." Let's control them. Chicago has strict gun laws, but has a high number of gunshot deaths. They have a 50-percent school dropout rate. Many of these...

Letter: "We need Wyatt Earp rules for gun control"
The pernicious poison of the powerfully practiced tongue with a mercilessly malicious, woefully unyielding, extrapolation of the virtues of our violent society, all at the behest of a badly behaving benefactor (vis-a-vis Wayne LePierre and ilk) must be dismissed all with a dutifully...

Letter: Feinstein has reason for her positions on guns
During the course of the gun debate, I have come across many letters to the editor bemoaning Senator Dianne Feinstein's stance on assault weapons and gun bans in general. People are quick to criticize the senior senator from California about her ideas about gun safety, but it seems...

As others see it: Who'll pay for counseling?
The idea that we can somehow head off gun violence in public places by flooding public places with more guns, as some are advocating in the wake of the school shooting tragedy in Newtown, Conn., continues to be a baffler: Wouldn't more guns increase the likelihood of more guns going...

Letters: Arguments condoning gun freedom often make no sense
I have been reading a lot on gun control in the weeks since the Sandy Hook massacre. It's interesting to read both sides of the argument. My stance is against, but for what it's worth, I'd like to comment on a couple editorials in the Globe recently. Mr. Pitts, I want to commend...
