Letter to the Editor: One man’s take on mass shootings

E-mail Print PDF
The recent Fed-X shooting seems to be the current crisis for more gun control, who failed, the FBI, the local police, the local District Attorney, so much for the red flag law in that state.

If you really want to stop this then ban mental people from buying a gun! Police: FedEx shooter legally bought guns used in shooting -...

Letter to the editor: Raging against the government

E-mail Print PDF
Well, I think it is time for another letter to the editor.

I know a little more than the average citizen about the law because of my many years in law enforcement and hope that other people who know more about the law than I, can correct me if I am wrong.

I do not claim to be a lawyer and these letters are opinions that everyone has, some being bigger than others, if you know what I mean!

Governor Grisham just signed a law that ends qualified immunity, New Mexico ends qualified immunity (msn.com).

So, does this mean she, too can be sued and brought to court for violating a person’s civil rights?  I mean it would only be fair with all of her past orders during Covid-19 that...

Dear Editor:

Being retired from police work in the military and in the local community for more than 38+ years I have encountered several cases where the Federal Government Refused to prosecute gun cases that only they could file because it was not allowed under NM State law. I had a complaint from the family of one of my registered sex offenders who was carrying an AR-15 every[where] he went. The family told me the wife purchased it legally, but the ATF in Albuquerque refused to go after this guy, made sure it was in my report to protect the department. There were other cases same excuse, guns with silencers from down south, a couple from out of state with sawed of rifles or AR’s...

Letter to the Editor: For Visitors to cvvaccine.nmhealth.org

New Mexico residents are encouraged to register for the Cornovirus Vaccine. It’s an easy process, at first. Pertinent information is gathered, and a decision is made about notification: phone, text or email. But then, depending upon how you connect to the internet, a test must be passed. It’s called a “CAPTCHA.” Presumably, most pass the CAPTCHA, as unlimited retakes are allowed. But there are those, such as myself, who fail repeatedly. For us, online registration is an impossibility. This angers me.

Moreover, for those who browse the internet by way of a VPN or the TOR network, I suspect that the bar for passing is elevated.

Fortunately, though, the New Mexico Department of...

Letter to the Editor: Failed representation with opportunity lost in the U.S. Space Command for New Mexico

N.M. Tech alumna, B. S. Engineering, Former candidate for U. S.

Congress District 3

The news of New Mexico losing the race to land U.S. Space Command, Jan. 13th, 2020, was disheartening to read as someone who comes from the engineering field.  It brought flashbacks of me graduating from New Mexico Tech with an engineering degree and no job to be had in New Mexico.  Here in New Mexico, we were one of six finalists for the U.S. Space Command which would have overseen military space operations.  Recently, the U.S Air Force selected Birmingham, Ala. as the location for the Space Command.

Alabama will be in for job opportunities our leaders in New Mexico squelched.  From Mayor Keller...
