Beware a well-armed government


Letters to the Editor

Vance Armor
In the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, progressives are emboldened by the prospect that public opinion may shift toward their policies favoring citizen disarmament. Robin Meyers’ op-ed in Oklahoma Gazette is a fine crystallization of sentiments held by those who favor a certain kind of disarmament policy — but not a general disarmament policy. Rev. Meyers laments “[a] gun-loving, gun-saturated, gun-worshipping culture.”

It’s that time of year again, when the mundane clashes with the ridiculous and adults become Very Serious People while wearing proverbial clown shoes.

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.

Responsible gun control


Letters to the Editor

Jackie Gaston
Increasing access to guns as the solution of gun violence makes as much sense as doubling up on doughnuts to lose weight. Not gonna happen. Why not try responsible gun control including a bipartisan deal with state and local governments to buy back semiautomatic weapons? That’s what Australia did in 1996 after a gunman killed 35 tourists and wounded 23 more. Their buyback covered about one-fifth of all firearms in Australia, including more than 600,000 semiautomatic shotguns and rifles.

Mad, mad, mad men


CFN

Gazette staff
The late comedian Bill Hicks once called people in advertising “Satan’s little helpers.” While that catchy phrase isn’t explicitly noted in a Feb. 13 Washington Post story about Oklahoma City-based Ackerman McQueen, it does sort of loom over the article’s examination of how the high-profile firm has shaped some bizarre ad campaigns for the National Rifle Association.
