Scott Rall: Guns are special in a special way
Scott Rall Daily Globe outdoors columnist It took me until I was about 35 years old to finally cement my current philosophy on purchasing guns. When thinking about the purchase of a gun you need to adopt the “guns are in addition to and not instead of” mentality. What I...

Scott Rall: Chokes and patterns and all that jazz
Scott Rall Daily Globe outdoors writer I was out at the Worthington Gun Club the other day and shot a friend’s pistol. It was a different gun than I was accustomed to and I did not shoot it very well. I got the bullets down range to a paper target in a safe manner, but if that...

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...

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...

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

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"
