Banning guns won't stop inhumane acts

I've been sickened by the disgusting violent acts by a few unstable people in the recent past. It is unthinkable to imagine these acts are not predetermined by some selfish, senseless individuals who have some sort of psychological disorder.

More gun control takes us in the wrong direction

As an elementary teacher, special educator and principal, I am appalled with the president's attempt to reassure listeners that we need more gun control. These words will move us in the opposite direction necessary to stop any bad guys. Why do you think the "gun free" zones are the most vuln…
