Harsher penalties for gun crimes

Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey was born and grew up in Uvalde, Texas ("Matthew McConaughey urges gun reform at White House press briefing," Web, June 7). He spoke at a recent White House press conference on the Uvalde school massacre, calling for new gun legislation. He said, "We start by making the loss of these lives matter."

'Red flag' laws a bad idea

"Red flag" laws seem so justified and necessary -- especially right after some nutcase shoots up a school. But can we please pause for a breath ("Lawmakers eye bipartisan national 'red flag' law in wake of Texas school shooting," Web, May 25)?

Cheap energy helps us care for planet

A perverse benefit of today's high gas prices: They are a bitter forewarning of what will soon become normal as President Biden continues to bring in more severe climate-change and renewable-energy policies ("Gas prices double since Biden's presidency began," Web, June 5). After all, Mr. Biden has made clear that pleasing the extreme left in the Democratic Party and their activist allies in the climate-change movement is a higher priority than taking action to boost fossil-fuel production to keep prices low.

Kavanaugh on very little, but we have one thing in common: our belief that a judicial authority should be free from intimidation, particularly where he or she resides ("Armed man arrested outside Justice Kavanaugh's home planned to kill him: Report" Web, June 8).

Noem: S.D. will sue if USDA withholds lunch money over transgender sports debate," Web, June 3). This type of aggressive tactic that forces teachers to disregard their religious views about human biology reminds me of the actions of the Nixon administration staffers who caused Watergate. The only difference is that this is socially motivated.

EDS NOTE: OBSCENITY - Abortion-rights protesters Greg Piteo, left, and Maeve Bradley, hold up signs during a demonstration outside of the U.S. Supreme Court, Saturday, May 7, 2022, in Washington. A draft opinion suggests the U.S. Supreme Court could be poised to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a Politico report released Monday. Whatever the outcome, the Politico report represents an extremely rare breach of the court's secretive deliberation process, and on a case of surpassing importance. (AP Photo/Amanda Andrade-Rhoades)

An armed man carrying a handgun, knife and pepper spray was arrested near the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. According to media reports, he then told police he was there to kill Kavanaugh. Democrats would call this "exercising one's First Amendment" right.
