Careful where you point that

Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
“Locked, loaded and legal” (News, Peter Wright, May 9, Oklahoma Gazette) sounds like a gun guy’s wet dream, but it may present more problems than solutions. Concealed carry offers no indication to criminals that they are in for a fight, and thus the public presumption is that open carry is a deterrent. But there is a caveat.

The biggest problem with guns

Letters to the Editor

Thomas Baines
I have spent much of the last 75 years in both military and civilian service under arms. I was born and grew up in rural Oklahoma, where I learned that firearms were tools, not toys or status symbols.
