Letter to the editor

President Donald Trump’s recent column attacking "Medicare for All" is laughable and riddled with "alternative facts."

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.
