“Oh, the NHL lockout is over. And just when I had almost completely forgotten about hockey...”

“Sal Gomez (Letter, Jan. 6), you are correct except for one point. When money is forcibly taken from one person or group, and given to another person or group, it is no longer charity, moral obligation, or compassion driven. The Bible suggests we as individuals should help our fellow man, not that a governing body should force us to contribute to a “general fund” to distribute as it sees fit.”

“Define delusional; The Liberal belief that the men and women in the military and law enforcement, that have taken an oath to protect our Constitution, will disregard the 2nd Amendment and disarm the American public, which would include their own families!”

“If someone wants to purchase an assault weapon with a high capacity magazine, it’s their right under the guise of a well armed militia. On the other hand, we should also have body scanners at malls, grade schools, concerts, grocery stores, and public restrooms. That could fall under the guise of well-regulated, and create millions of jobs in the process, and the 2nd amendment could be our economic salvation. How are you going to pay for it? Assault weapons are not free, and neither should a body scan. Congress needs to move into the 21st century and leave barbarism to the mideast.”

“Why do progressives keep using the ‘C’ word? What is the opposite of progressive? Regressive. Use it, over and over again.”

“As I watch the rescue on HLN of two deer trapped on an icy pond near Waltham, Mass., I’m both impressed and inspired by the interagency cooperation and team work between the Fire, Police Departments and Animal Rescue League with their successful handling of a delicate situation. Maybe they’re the folks we need to send to Congress.”

“Is it not hypercritical for the news paper in New York that is printing gun owners names and addresses because they do not believe citizens should own guns for protection, to hire armed guards because of the backlash for their own protection?”

“Concerning the movie ‘Lincoln,’ Democrats don’t have to go back 200 yrs. to find something their President did for them. They have social security, medicare, medicaid, Obamacare, women’s rights, gay rights, immigration, Detroit is alive, Bin Laden is dead, and they had a surplus until ‘you know who’ turned it around. What do the republicans have to be proud of?”
