Viewpoint: More gun control laws not the answer

You can pass a gun control law every day for the next five years and confiscate the guns from every law-abiding citizen at your peril. There will always be predators, well-armed criminals and sociopaths to prey on society. There will always be stupid parents who will allow guns to fall into the hands of children. These facts are well documented, yet there are self-serving politicians and their liberal allies who wish to disarm the population and trash the Second Amendment. Why do they wish to create an America without the means for its citizens to defend themselves or their loved ones against the threat of harm or tyranny?

The majority of law-abiding citizens do not trust the government to protect them and fear the government more than the criminal. History has taught us that governments, in their quest for absolute power, will go to great lengths to control the masses. In the last century alone, an excess of 150 million people were slaughtered by their own governments. History has also taught us that the same formula was used to destroy the greatest civilizations over the millenniums. Please note the formula for absolute control by a power-crazed oligarchy of powerbrokers.

  • Destroy the moral fiber that is the matrix that holds a civilized society together. This will create so many social and economic problems that will surely destroy the Social Order.
  • Destroy all religious belief in God, the Bible and the Commandments. This will promote a culture hostile to religion where man no longer needs God and the children are not taught the Christian moral and ethical values that a civilized society must have to survive. The nation will lose its social conscience and barbarism will prevail.
  • The power to tax is the power to destroy. Taxing people beyond reasonable limits will destroy segments of society that are productive. This will force governments to develop more and more nefarious methods to complete the transfer of wealth. This will result in each succeeding generation being much poorer with a gradual erosion of the strong middle class and the transfer of wealth to the Oligarchs will be complete.
  • Take away their firearms and all means of self-protection and they will be an easy prey and offer minimal resistance, for what they cannot control they will destroy.

  • Viewpoint: Adding such a robust water resource with Mounds Lake would set us apart I have lived in Madison County most of my life, and for the past 14 years, I served on the Town Council in Pendleton, recently retiring as president.

  • Letter: Dr. David and Kay Mares are local treasures Throughout history we have had treasures that were not appreciated until years or centuries after their time. The lost art of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The terra cotta men of China. Vincent Van Gogh was a failing, starving artist in his time. Now his works are some of the world’s most valued. Madison County has a prize of its own that should be recognized in its time.

  • Letter: Repentance is key to surviving times What happens to a nation that refuses to repent before God? What happens to a nation that had strong Christian beginnings, but now more closely resembles Sodom and Gomorrah?

  • Letter: Anderson's annexed areas still lack business On July 10, 2014, at the Anderson City Council meeting, the executor of the estate was shut off from speaking, because she did not live in Adams Township, and the person from Adams Township tried to get up and speak was not allowed to. The council rushed the vote for zoning the land for business.

  • Letter: Birth control, abortion should be woman's choice Why are Republicans so gung-ho on restricting birth control and abortion? That's easy. Republican legislators are so unpopular because they don't legislate and literally block all bills that would help the middle and lower income classes.

  • Bannon, Tom Viewpoint: Paramount is an investment that is paying dividends About 25 years ago the citizens of Anderson made a decision that would have a long lasting impact on the community. Instead of saving the old Paramount Theatre, which had fallen into serious disrepair, it was decided that the easy and prudent decision was to get rid of the building to create additional downtown parking. Shortly after the Paramount came down, the community got rid of another abandoned structure when the old Carnegie Building, which was the former home of the Anderson Public Library, was torn down.

  • Letter: Wall Street should not be in politics Talk about corruption, ponzi schemes, we're looking at you, Wall Street, controlling the prices of our food, gasoline and clothing we must buy and about every company in America — while trashing President Obama, the Affordable Health Care Plan, along with every Democrat, to influence our elections, at the same time.
