Resident's Viewpoint: Speak up against NRA's faulty logic
State Rep. Andrea Kieffer has said she's getting "tons" of emails on the gun control issue and that "most are very much in support of our Second Amendment rights." I understood that to mean they oppose tightening of gun control laws - from people she already agrees with. But polls...

Editor's Viewpoint: Communication key in tackling suicide issue
