Former police officer sounds off on NRA, guns

E-mail Print PDF
Well if you have read my past letters about the NRA this should be of some interest to you. Per my last letter I did not like Mr. Oliver North asking for 2 million dollars to fight the incoming politicians when he and Mr. Wayne La-Pierre are already millionaires. North said we has 6 million NRA member’s, then all we had to...

Letter to the Editor: There’s time to oppose Nuke waste in NM

E-mail Print PDF
Forty years after the “worst accident” in the United States involving radioactive material occurred in Church Rock, New Mexico on July 16, 1979 when approximately 94 million gallons of radioactive waste that was held in unlined evaporation ponds at the United Nuclear Corporation’s (UNC) mill site was released into the Rio Puerco River and flowed through nearby communities and on through the state of Arizona westward, UNC wants to begin a clean up effort that will allow disposal of Northeast Church Rock (NECR) mine waste that is estimated at approximately 1,000,000 cubic yards.

On March 19 and 21, 2019 the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) held two Public Environmental...

Letter to the Editor: Guns and the NRA

E-mail Print PDF
Some time since last letter to the editor, so I thought I would throw in a few words about the left wing Democrats in Santa Fe, and some of their new laws. A lifetime member of the NRA and firm believer in the Second Amendment, however I have seen too many people that should not have guns that hide behind the NRA and the debate.

The NRA never asks the members if they would mind background checks, they just fight every new law that comes out and keep asking me to donate almost every day via phone calls, or advertisements in the mail.  I have donated a few dollars here and there. According to Mr. Oliver North, the new NRA President, in a recent letter, we have six million members and they...

Letter to the Editor: No to Trump

E-mail Print PDF
To all American Citizens: Please do not give President Donald Trump one penny or give in one inch in his strong arm tactics to extort money for his immoral wall. The separation of families and the detention of children has crossed The Red Line of American values and has diminished our credibility in the world.

Donald Trump is an embarrassment to America. He has sown division, propagated hate and violence, shunned our historical allies while embracing our historical enemies, disrespected women and minorities and mocked Native Americans who have contributed to the founding of our great nation. 19 women accusers later, he has given credence to MAGA: “Married Adulterer Groping...

Letter to the editor: ‘Mitigate by all means appropriate unintended pregnancy’

E-mail Print PDF
The Most Rev. James Wall, Bishop of the Diocese of Gallup wrote a letter to oppose repealing New Mexico’s abortion law, which is at this time unenforceable because of the U. S. Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade.

He states that abortion targets and victimizes a deeply vulnerable population – unborn children and future generations. In support of his position he states that NM is low in educational attainment, economic opportunity, and childhood health and high in poverty.

President Obama himself observed that children growing up without a father are more likely to live in poverty, more likely to drop out of school and more likely to wind up in prison.  A married couple with...
