Poll: Today's Live Poll
  • The real problem is that until the Supreme Court takes the 2nd Amendment seriously, overturning state and local laws that prevent sane, trained private citizens from carrying handguns in the ready for shooting muggers and rapists -- we cannot trust the government to supervise the distribution of firearms. A government that does not recognize this right is a bigger threat than any handful of criminals and crazy people. Besides, if you don't think the threat of criminals and crazies is big enough to justify taking steps to defend yourself, then shut your pie hole and quit complaining about them.

  • Amazing. Did you also complain last year when Feinstein put a hold on gun rights legislation? I find your piece to be discriminatory and bigoted and insulting to the intelligence of the reader. FYI, the problem with Sullivan is that he has systematically led and organization that has trampled the civil rights of Americans as an apparent GOAL. When you have a department that has been dragged in front of and criticized in Congressional hearings, when you have that department being criticized in open court by the presiding judge for their prosecutorial practices, then there are clear problems with the admin. and Sullivan is at fault. If a physician committed numerous incidences of malpractice would you reward that MD with a promotion to chief of medicine? It's amazing that you people have a problem with listening to Osama B L's telephone calls or handing over a list of books withdrawn from a library but you are willing to have a rogue government agency create an enormous data base of American citizens containing their medical records and violating their privacy. How will you feel about it when your second grader is added to the list because he was prescribed Ritalin?

  • Could you perhaps define for readers what you mean by "the" mentally ill? I was not aware we were generic. "Is the organization's goal 'Lugers for loonies?' " is patently offensive, ask Jews and African Americans, and many others who have been similarly diminished. I would ask for apology, but I know it would not be forthcoming. Harold A.

  • Loonies? How is that an acceptable word to use in a newspaper? Should we expect the "N" word next?
