U.S. Senate should
move gun laws


Re. “18 youngsters killed in class capturing,” Web page A1, Could 25:

I urge the U.S. Senate to guard my kids. I’ve a 7-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son. We talked about what occurred in Texas and each of my kids can’t perceive why they’d give somebody who’s a teenage boy a gun. I can’t perceive it both.

I’m uninterested in having to clarify to my kids issues that I can’t even perceive myself. Final week I needed to speak to my kids about the truth that the federal government has determined they know what ought to occur to ladies’s our bodies higher than ladies themselves do. As we speak I’ve to inform them that there are kids who can get weapons and kill different kids.

The U.S. Senate should get one thing carried out. Disgrace on these senators who care extra about cash and energy than the lives of the youngsters on this nation.

background checks

There are too many U.S. senators that have to accompany the Scarecrow to Oz to go to the Wizard within the hopes he can present them with one thing they lack. Possibly the Lion and the Tinman might present them what it takes.

If psychological sickness is a proof for horrific habits, then a background examine could be a begin to preclude somebody from acquiring a lethal firearm. And, Greg Abbott, the firearms used within the states with strict firearms legal guidelines come from states like yours.

Vote for Diana Becton
for Contra Costa DA

Contra Costa County is my dwelling. I’m urging everybody to vote within the June 7 election for Diana Becton for district lawyer.

First, she’s skilled. She has successfully managed the workplace over the past 4 years, main a crew of 200-plus folks, and managing a finances of $49 million. We want an skilled chief and might’t afford to return to the dysfunction of the previous.

Second, she deploys our assets well. She is concentrated on weapons, gangs and violent crime to maintain our county secure. Simply learn this 12 months’s report from the Public Coverage Institute of California on how crime has declined in our county. She understands that we must be good on crime with the intention to be secure.

Lastly, she’s not afraid to carry corrupt politicians, police or companies accountable.

On the subject of the protection of my household and my group, Diana Becton is the one I belief.

Canceling gasoline tax will
make issues worse

Re. “Leaders should cancel gasoline tax — now,” Letters to the Editor, Web page A10, Could 25:

Ray Fortney couldn’t be extra fallacious. Driving a motorized vehicle is essentially the most harmful, harmful exercise we legally interact in. The social prices (visitors jams, parking issues, infrastructure upkeep, air pollution, accidents, fatalities, and so forth) are huge. The paltry taxes paid by motorists don’t even start to cowl the precise harm they inflict. For this reason gasoline prices extra in Europe — because it rightly ought to.

Need real enchancment? Tax motorists in accordance with the hurt they inflict on others and subsidize those that are literally serving to, akin to public transit customers and particularly energetic transportation customers. These inflicting essentially the most hurt are screaming for help whereas these offering essentially the most profit (the particular person biking eight miles every method to work) get nothing — apart from the finger from motorists who imagine they don’t even belong on the roads.

In cone of silence,
GOP feigns innocence

Letter author Cathy Ledbetter was disturbed in regards to the response to the latest Roe v. Wade leak from the Supreme Courtroom (“Supreme Courtroom leak is unprecedented betrayal,” Web page A6, Could 19). She claimed she by no means heard of Republicans stooping so low.

It appears she has been sporting the cone of silence. I assume the Republican president trying to overturn a lawful election or the refusal to even contemplate Merrick Garland for the Supreme Courtroom don’t represent stooping low. Let’s face it, there are numerous extra examples from which to decide on.
