For more than a year, Americans, Congress and the world have discussed Russia’s attempts to influence our elections. However, some of their most dangerous and well-documented attacks against state-level voting systems have been a mere footnote.
To the Editor:
In “Making Background Checks Work” (Op-Ed, Feb. 13), John R. Lott Jr. desperately tries to push one of the gun lobby’s favorite narratives: that background checks are bad for public safety.
The main pillar of Mr. Lott’s argument is that our underfunded, underresourced and broken background check system prevents “good guys” from getting guns.
In 2018, our security can no longer exclusively be defined in terms of tanks, airplanes and weapon systems.
As government, private industry and American families have adopted technology into nearly every aspect of our lives, the need for cybersecurity has grown exponentially. Unfortunately, our response to this threat has been piecemeal at best.
I'd like to applaud the Daily Journal for its recent "Do away with those unwanted drugs" editorial because ending this epidemic is up to each and every one of us.
The Sept. 19 editorial “A preventable disaster” was correct; every American child shot is a “preventable disaster.” But instead of acting, Congress is going in the wrong direction.
The recent article titled “Gunrunner bought guns in Arkansas to sell to Chicago gangs” shows, yet again, that guns from outside Illinois are spilling blood in our streets.
This time, the trafficker was Klint Kelley buying guns in Arkansas. In March, it was Willies Biles buying guns in Indiana, and the list goes on and on.
These are dark times in Washington. It’s no secret that President Trump and his team are working overtime to turn back the clock on our rights and divest from our communities.
Today, I went to the House floor – something that I’ve done hundreds of times over the past four years. But today was different.
"A New Foundation for America" is a peculiar title for President Trump's new budget because it erodes the very foundation of our great nation: our farming communities.
