LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Gun Owners Should Be Responsible

I would first like to let you know that I have owned a gun legally most of my life. My father taught my brothers and me how to shoot and hunt when we were very young, and I, too, have taught my son and daughter how to shoot a gun and how to hunt with a gun. I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment of the Constitution because I believe that every man and woman have the right to bear arms. So when I read your article, “Emotional President Calls for Increased Gun Control,” in the January 7, 2016 edition of The Informer, I thought to myself, “why are the so-called gun rights people so upset?” The president is not calling for someone to take our guns away, nor is he saying we can’t buy any more guns. Am I missing something here? What I am reading is that he wants to tighten background checks, so people who shouldn’t have guns can’t legally buy them, that’s all. So what is so wrong with that? I think big money is getting in the way of common sense. Gun show promoters have a lot at stake and they are pouring big money into fighting anything that looks like an infringement on their right to let vendors buy and sell guns to the public at their shows. That, to me, is the real issue, background checks and the gun show sales. Once we solve that issue I think a lot of this rhetoric will die down.

Yes, I Am a Redskins Fan

“Hail to the Redskins!” The whole DMV is buzzing about our upcoming playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. I haven’t seen this much burgundy and gold around town in years — hats, scarfs, jackets, jerseys, gloves, and car flags — man, it’s everywhere! And that’s great for our team and our city, because to me this is the only way for us to be that “one city” that politicians talk about. Oh yeah, another thing is that we don’t have to look at that disgusting blue and tin color of that other team that is always showing its ugly self from time to time around here. Here’s wishing victory comes to the Redskins on Sun- day, but if not, we made the playoffs and from where we came that’s coming a long way and we are moving in the right way. GO SKINS!!!
