Niagara Gazette — Guns should be for hunting only

”Land of the free, home of the brave,” where any nut with a little care can get a gun to kill people. When an attempt is made to limit the purchase for the sole purpose of hunting, there’s an uproar. I guess a lot of people’s manhood is threatened. 

Does any other country allow civilians to wander around the streets armed to kill? When will we grow up and limit guns strictly for hunting? There are thousands of gun killings every year in our country but we have to have another massacre to (hopefully) get concrete action.

Let the NRA have its hunting rifles. No more killings of the innocent.

Park improvements good, but ...

I go to Griffin Park almost every day and I somewhat applaud Mayor Paul Dyster trying to better the park. But, and there always seems to be a but for our mayor, he wants to put a canoe launch at the park. Where would he put it? The little river is all muddied up and needs to be dredged at least from the launch to the river mouth. Maybe one of his people could ask the Corp of Engineers to help here.   

Also, he put up a new kids playground great, but where did he put it? Near the boat launch where at any day in the summer the lot is full of boat trailers. Sometimes this is so full, the trailers park on River Road. The old playground had its own parking lot. Wait until this summer. What he should be doing now is cutting all the dead trees that have either fallen in the river or have fallen on each other which means, these will fall one of these days. Redoing the park I think is great, but how about planning first.

  • LETTER: Fighting the vile lies in Niagara Falls politics

    I am sorry to have to write this letter. However, lies, distortions, and vile falsehoods cannot go unchallenged. So I feel compelled to fight back against the most recent lie — the completely false accusations that the Niagara Falls Democratic Committee and I are racist.

  • LETTER: Erie County SPCA has facts wrong I am writing in response to recent statements made by Gina Browning, Erie County SPCA director of public relations. She recently stated: “When no assistance was provided by the Rainbow Animal Shelter regarding the Niagara County incident (the Rainbow Animal Shelter is the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Niagara County), SPCA serving Erie County representatives arrived at the Amherst Animal Emergency Clinic Saturday to assist.”

  • LETTERS: Rough roads tell tale of Falls This letter is in response to the rumor that Mayor Paul Dyster plans to run for Congresswoman Louise Slaughter’s congressional seat. He has not done anything to show that he is worthy of Slaughter’s congressional seat. He can’t even oversee his Public Works’ division, as evidenced by the deplorable condition and the job not done on our roads.
