At least 17 people were killed in a shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida. All of our hearts go out to the families of these victims.

Well maybe not all, because immediately this tragedy became a political drama to whittle away our gun rights.

I want to point out what our Constitution says…

Our public gun control debate has too often been polarized by extremes. But gun control does not imply confiscation of all firearms, which is plainly unconstitutional. Justice Scalia, as conservative a judge as there was, stated in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) that the state did have a…

I would like to respond to the Associated Press article “Lawmaker: Teachers Should Have Guns” that appeared in the Feb. 17 edition of the Rocky Mount Telegram.

I was a high school teacher in Martin and Edgecombe counties for 18 years. I also have my concealed carry license and have…

I'll be the first to admit that I fall way short in my Christian faith, but I do recognize Christian bashing when I see it. In a recent letter by socialist worshiper and leftist Ms. Koo, she mocks and slanders opinion writers to this forum as "holier than thou" for acknowledging their…

I am a Boy Scout with Troop 587. I have been involved with Scouting for six years. I started Scouts as a Tiger cub when I was in the first grade. I moved up to Boy Scouts last year when I finished the fifth grade. My favorite things to do as a Scout are to camp and make s’mores around the…

Many letters to this newspaper seem to think the founding fathers had it all right when they wrote the Constitution. Wrong!

Other writers believe the Constitution was inspired by God. Well, that’s debatable. What is clear is that it was written by a group of privileged white men, who took…

Opinions abound in the news and in the media. But do you want someone else to determine what you believe? Labels are easy to produce and hard to remove. Critical thinking goes beyond parroting what we hear or read. It defines us as intelligent, caring people who earnestly want to know the truth and…

I would like to explain my view of the the two economic systems, in their purest forms, that are debated in this country.

First there is socialism, which is based on the idea of everyone contributing to the well being of society. This means that if one has a talent to benefit society, they are…

Thank you for running the recent Fayetteville Observer editorial about the demise of the film industry in North Carolina. But I don't buy the premise that Republicans in Raleigh have not given movie makers incentives.

They have given them plenty: An incentive to stay away, an incentive to look…

It was all so much easier in the bad old days of the Cold War.

The bad guys wore black hats.

Not really of course, but they did wear uniforms. They were obvious that way. We pledged allegiance to “one nation under God.” They swore allegiance to the U.S.S.R and to the God-less communists…
