Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:


A RANT AND A RAVE to the Supreme Court for upholding our right to bear arms. Our right to protect ourselves is a Constitutional right given by our forefathers. Too bad it was such a close vote (5 to 4). Only five judges think we have the right to protect ourselves and family? Tsk, tsk.

THE SUPREME COURT has ruled in a 5-4 decision that Americans have the right to keep guns in their homes for self-defense. I wonder how many of the justices are aware of the statistic showing that if a gun is kept in a home and it kills somebody, there is only a 1-in-20 chance that the person killed is an intruder?

WHERE DID STUPID mortgage borrowers live before they gambled on an unaffordable house? In apartments, with mom, somewhere. They didn't just appear out of thin air. Now that they gambled and lost, let 'em go back to mom, and work harder to provide for themselves. It's not up to taxpayers to support them.

RAVE TO MR. TROUTMAN and the Augusta Lynx for the free hockey jersey for the season ticket holders. I love it and will wear it to every game. It's a very nice gift and lets me know that you appreciate the fans just as much as the fans appreciate all the hard work you are doing to keep the team in Augusta. See you in October. Let's Go Lynx!
