Notre Dame’s lying star doesn’t deserve to be drafted Re the recent scandal at Notre Dame and imaginary girlfriends [Jan. 25 Gazette]: In Mr. [Manti] Te’o’s interview with Katie Couric, this young man only heaped more lies onto his pathetic earlier lies.

I'm a member of a local gun club. At our most recent meeting (which was packed), Jim Tedisco's staunch defense of the 2nd amendment was discussed at length. He's being lauded by the sportsmen in our area; and rightfully so. Nice job Jim Tedisco.

The idea of the comment is close enough to Thomas' own words. Once the guarantee is gone, so is the Republic.

"To take from one, because it is thought that his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, —the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry, & the fruits acquired by it.'"[3]

Any person who is capable of owning a gun (aside from true hunters for food- not sport hunters) is a person who is capable of murder and truly has no regard for human life. Guns are made to kill, they are not made to "stop" people from harming you. Guns Kill people and more children and women who live in a home with a gun are 50% more likely to die or be seriously injured by that very same gun. There are so few documented cases of anyone ever seriously protecting themselves from that unknown intruder most gun owners claim they need to protect themselves from. People who own guns are cowards who live in fear, or active criminals- whether drug or mafia related or power and control freak men who are most likely physically and mentally abusive to women in their lives. That's it. There are a few exceptions reserved for the women who must live in fear from such abusive men in their lives.
Our societal problem with guns and violence begins and ends with men who have a sick attraction to violence and killing and lethal guns only feed that sickness.
