Reader Opinion: Guess it's working
Seven dead, 50 wounded in Chicago, a city with some of the toughest gun laws in the country, over Father's Day weekend. Every time there is a shooting liberals call for more restricting gun control laws. The liberals never talk about Chicago or Washington, D.C. Guns don't kill people—people...

Reader Opinion: Correlation?
See if you can figure it out. Chicago ended 2016 with over 4,300 shootings and 762 murders. In 2017 they already have 27 shootings and 3 murders. Chicago has been under Democrat leadership for decades. Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country. Is there a logical...

OPINION COLUMN: Killing In America
I don't know how to write a column on this theme except to say, stop, stop, please stop the killing. Killing somebody is the not the answer. Killing people because of race, gender, religion, or for any reason under the sun is wrong. Killing does not eliminate problems. Killing does...
