Speakout: Feb. 14, 2013

Gangs

Gun prohibition is the perfect way to create violent gun gangs who terrorize America.

Peace

I hope the New Year can bring peace in families. To love each other and not forsake anyone person. To take time to know each other, not just special ones. Everyone matters in a family.

Flag

It is a shame when a school is ready to start a varsity sports event and not only don’t they have an American flag posted anywhere, but they have no music or singer. Facing a blank wall does not count.

Weapons

Please don’t ban the sale and possession of assault rifles. I now want to go out and buy my first ever rifle to protect my family and myself if someone shows up at my house to blow us away.

Love

It’s not the video games, violent movies or music. It’s a lack of love and human interaction that makes people want to shoot others. Let’s look at the individuals and find out exactly what’s lacking.

Violence

Why do you think that a ban in assault rifles will lower gun violence? The 1994 ban increased violence; go online and look at facts. What makes you think it will be any different?

Officiating

Basketball officials, I know your job is tough, but please treat the mod teams the same as the older kids. They need to learn about traveling, reaching and moving picks. Games are out of control.

Speakout

I love Speakout. I wish it was published daily. What an original and amazing idea. Thanks, PR.

Laws

Stricter gun laws are only part of the solution. We need to start taking mental-health care seriously. We are lacking services (inpatient and outpatient). Government and insurance companies need to pony up cash to be sure there is help available.
