    Bill for tax-exempt guns really doesn't go far enough
    Thank goodness Florida lawmakers finally are taking steps to encourage people to buy guns. The entire gun-selling industry in the state no doubt is about to go under. Without this valiant rescue attempt, firearms soon would disappear from our streets, and...
  • Punish the gun enablers

    Punish the gun enablers
    Thank you, Dan Rodricks, for continuing to focus on how criminals acquire guns ("Enablers of gun crime hard to trace," April 2). A felon's access to guns would be limited to theft without enablers. And thefts of guns would be easier to trace. U.S....
