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.

Olympic athletes are training on the Oklahoma River. A 50-story skyscraper just reshaped the city’s skyline.

For over a decade I wrote a regular column for this page, a second opinion on the dominant political and theological ethos of my beloved Oklahoma — where I was born, have raised three children, and continue to lead the same amazing church.
