  • Americans must realize opinions have consequences

    Americans must realize opinions have consequences
    We Americans have a very unique and debilitating character flaw: We proudly hold and assert our strongly held individual attitudes, opinions and beliefs — while at the same time dissociating ourselves with the direct negative consequences of those...
  • ‘After the Shooting’ project created after Muslim student slayings in the South

     
    Craig Stephen Hicks is accused of killing three Muslim college students in Chapel Hill, N.C., on Feb. 10. Killed were 21-year-old Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, her 23-year-old husband, Deah Shaddy Barakat, and her 19-year-old sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha....
  • Thousands of deaths attributed to firearms [Letter]

    I am writing in response to Fred Frevert's March 31 letter and his understandable questioning of the gun death statistics cited from a gun control advocacy organization in Tom Zirpoli's March 25 opinion column. I'd like to reassure Frevert that the...
  • How many gun laws are enough?

    How many gun laws are enough?
    Reading the March 29 edition, I noted the all-too-common stories of people with criminal records on the street, committing another crime. I also read the Your View by Fritz Walker of the anti-gun group CeaseFirePA. The National Rifle Association, nor...
  • Tom Koch, comedy writer for Bob and Ray, Mad magazine, dies at 89

     Tom Koch, comedy writer for Bob and Ray, Mad magazine, dies at 89
    Tom Koch, a laconic satirist whose refined sense of the absurdities of everyday life informed thousands of radio scripts for the comedy team Bob and Ray as well as a memorable Mad magazine sports spoof called "43-Man Squamish," died March 22 at his Laguna...
  • 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....
  • Don't take weapons from police

    Don't take weapons from police
    I will admit to being slightly short of ancient, but I remember in school being taught the policeman was our friend. If we were lost, afraid or whatever, go to a policeman and he would help you. My parents taught me to respect the policeman because he was...
  • Wandering Eye: The NRA is winning the gun-control debate, how development works in Baltimore, and more

    Wandering Eye: The NRA is winning the gun-control debate, how development works in Baltimore, and more
    Here in Baltimore, where guns are used to shoot people pretty much every day, controlling the availability of firearms is perhaps seen as a fundamental public-health priority. Not so elsewhere in this country, though. Pew Research Center has been tracking...
  • Removing stigma of mental illnesses an important step

    It would appear that the question of how to prevent suicidal pilots from flying is akin to the questions we ask about gun control. Do we punish everyone who flies because a minuscule percentage goes haywire? Do we ban flying? Surely it would be effective....
  • Organization's gun facts far from objective [Letter]

    Tom Zirpoli made an eloquent, if extremely biased, case for increased gun control in his March 25 column, "More guns equals more deaths," especially by making such contentious statements as "... facts are meaningless to those who choose to ignore them and...
  • Lots of lawmaking, little drama in 2015 for Virginia General Assembly

    Lots of lawmaking, little drama in 2015 for Virginia General Assembly
    RICHMOND — They started with an early promise on ethics reform, then waited to the last day to actually pass a bill. But in between, this legislature churned through issues large and small. At the end House leaders, Senate leaders and the governor...
